Vega (α Lyrae)

Vega (α Lyrae) is a white A-type dwarf star (A0Vvar) in the constellation of Lyre.
Vega is the third brightest star in the night sky and the brightest star in the northern hemisphere. With a distance of only 25 lightyears, Vega is one of our closest stellar neighbors. Like our Sun, it is a darf star, but its surface temperature is significantly higher, making it appear in a bluish light. Vega used to be the polar star some 14,000 years ago, and it will be again in another 12,000 years.
