Vega is the brightest star in the northern constellation of Lyra. It holds the Bayer designation α Lyrae, which is latinised to Alpha Lyrae and abbreviated Alpha Lyr or α Lyr. This star is relatively close at only 25 light-years (7.7 parsecs) from the Sun, and forms, together with Arcturus and Sirius, one of the most luminous stars in the Sun's neighborhood. It is the fifth-brightest star in the night sky, and the second-brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere, after Arcturus.
Dubbed by astronomers as the next most important star in the sky after the Sun, Vega was the northern pole star around 12,000 BCE and will be so again around the year 13,727, when its declination will be +86° 14’. It has served as the baseline for calibrating the photometric brightness scale and was one of the stars used to define the zero point for the UBV photometric system.
Vega is 2.1 times as massive as the Sun, and has an unusually low abundance of elements with a higher atomic number than that of helium. Since it rotates rapidly at the equator, it causes a temperature variation across the star's photosphere that reaches a maximum at the poles through the direction of which Vega is observed From Earth.
