Iota2 Cygni (Latinized from ι2 Cygni, often simply called ι Cygni[9]) is a star in the constellation Cygnus. Its apparent magnitude is 3.77[2] Located around 37.20 parsecs (121.3 ly) distant,[1] it is a blue-white main-sequence star of spectral type A5V,[3] a star that is currently fusing its core hydrogen. Based on rapid changes in the strength of a singly-ionized calcium absorption line, the star is likely host to a circumstellar disk.[10]
