Abstract: The Advanced Camera for Surveys on-board the Hubble Space Telescope was used to obtain imaging polarimetry of the light echo of V838 Mon at four different epochs. The results from an ongoing analysis of these observations are presented and a geometric distance estimate of 5.9 kpc is derived.
