57 Aquilae is a double star in the constellation Aquila. The primary star has an apparent visual magnitude of 5.70, while the secondary is magnitude 6.48.[2] The pair have an angular separation of 35.624 arcseconds and probably form a wide binary star system.[7] The estimated distance of the first component is 480 light-years (150 parsecs), while the second is at 510 light-years (160 parsecs). However, the margin of errors for their respective distance estimates overlap,[1] indicating a probability that they are actually located much closer to each other. Both stars are massive, B-type main sequence stars with rapid rotation rates.[3]
