Delta1 Lyrae, Latinized from δ1 Lyrae, is a binary star system in the constellation Lyra, approximately 1,100 light years away from Earth. The two stars complete an orbit around each other about once every 88 days. They are a spectroscopic binary, meaning the separation between the two is very small, and their orbital velocity is very high.[1][8]

The primary member, component A, is a bluish white main-sequence star of the spectral type B2.5V.
