Summer Triangle

A pattern of three bright stars that stands highest in the sky during the nights of summer and early autumn. Its brightest member is Vega, in the constellation Lyra, which rises first. Deneb, the tail of Cygnus, the swan, is the northernmost point of the triangle, with Altair, in Aquila, the eagle, marking the southern point.
