Very close to Delta Lyr. This cluster fortuitously gathers some stars close to Delta Lyr. This last watch a beautiful orange color. I count 7 stars, Delta Lyr being most brilliant, 3 stars of average brightness and 3 stars weak. Delta Lyr and 2 other stars form an isosceles triangle pointing towards E and a second triangle, overlapping in the first and made up of weak stars, points in opposite direction.
