Delta1 Lyrae1 Lyr) is a binary star system in the constellation Lyra, approximately 1,100 light years away from Earth. The two stars complete an orbit around each other about once every 88 days. They are a spectroscopic binary, meaning the separation between the two is very small, and their orbital velocity is very high.

The main star, IDS 18502+3650 A, is a bluish white star of the spectral type B2.5V, meaning it has a surface temperature of 11,000 to 25,000 kelvins.

Its 10th magnitude companion, IDS 18502+3650 B, is an orange giant star with the spectral type K2III. It therefore possesses a surface temperature of 3,500 to 5,000 kelvins and is cooler than the Sun, yet larger and brighter.
