At midnight in July the conspicuous summer triangle reaches its highest position in the sky. It is made of the brightest stars of the constellations Cygnus, Aquila, and Lyra: Deneb, Altair, and Vega. In the west the constellation Bootes is about to set. The prominent rectangle of Pegasus is rising in the east.
