I was looking to Scorpio the other day, and noticed that the last star in the tail (the telson's tip) -- known as Upsilon Scorpii, υ Scorpii, or Lesath -- seemed yet more red than the "heart" of the scorpion -- Antares or Alpha Scorpii. Was it that I was drunk, or some kind of sky pollution? (Actually, a friend confirmed it was red, and she seemed sober than me.) Or is it, indeed, red? I couldn't find any information on-line. I saw this database, but don't know how to find a star by its name, or if they have information about the color.
I don't know what could cause Upsilon Scorpii to appear red as it is not noted as being a highly variable star. It's spectral type is B2, which implies it would be blue/white in colour. If you know the spectral type of a star, which many stellar databases will note, you can work out its colour from this.
