Lyra is extremely small but one of the most noticeable constellations, thanks to Vega, one of Summer's most prominent stars.

For its size, Lyra is packed with interesting objects -- not only some very fine binocular binaries but also two significant variables as well as the best planetary nebula in the heavens.

Besides alpha Lyr you can investigate beta, theta, and the two variables R and RR Lyn.
