The brightest star in Aquila is Altair, "the eagle," a white star that is about 17 light-years from Earth. Altair is the southern point of a pattern of three bright stars called the Summer Triangle. (Deneb, in the constellation Cygnus, forms the triangle's northeastern point. Vega, in Lyra, the harp, is in the northwest. Altair is nice and bright and easy to find right up to the beginning of winter.)

The Complex Planetary Nebula Sh2-71 (Sharpless 71) is located about 3,260 light-years away from Earth in the northern constellation of Aquila (the Eagle). The long-assumed central star is the brightest star near the center, but some astronomers wonder if the much dimmer and bluer star (just to the right and down a bit) might be the parent of this beautiful object.
