The Bayer designation Nu Boötis (ν Boo / ν Boötis) is shared by two star systems, in the constellation Boötes:

  • ν¹ Boötis
  • ν² Boötis
  • They are separated by 0.17° on the sky.

    All of them were member of asterism 七公 (Qī Gōng), Seven Excellencies, Heavenly Market enclosure.

    Ptolemy considered Nu Boötis to be shared by Hercules, and Bayer assigned it a designation in both constellations: Nu Boötis (ν Boo) and Psi Herculis (ψ Her). When the modern constellation boundaries were fixed in 1930, the latter designation dropped from use.
