Beta Lacertae It is the name with which very luminous stellar objects are indicated, but whose emission of light varies irregularly over time.

Until the 1960s they were considered variable stars belonging to our Galaxy; successively it has been discovered that their distances are of the order of one billion years-wildebeest, beyond our galactic disk whose diameter is equivalent to approximately 100,000 light-years.

Regarding their nature, Beta Lacertae objects are thought to be related to the Quasar, the brightest objects in the Universe, and, like them, to be very bright galaxy nuclei, as well as to overcome the luminosity of any other neighboring star. The name of Beta Lacertae objects, or Lacertidos, derives from the group's prototype star, which is precisely the Beta in the constellation of the Lizard.
