Color filters.

Color filters.


explain..
Personally i think it'd be amazing if it were actually a nice deep red. It would really change the whole feel of that part of act 1 and give it the more horrific theme everyone wants so badly.
I guess it stopped burning during the time from cinematic to reaching it, and the star glows blue.
Red = fire = the place was on fire.
Blue = place not on fire = star itself glows blow.
Aurora Borealis

I like this.
It's blue because it's depressed that it's all alone. It'll glow a happy yellow once the game is released and everybody gets their hands on it. Then it'll become an angry red from being groped by so many people, and morph into Diablo himself.

Yep, that's the plot of Diablo 3.
Yo listen up here's a story
About a little guy that lives in a blue world
And all day and all night and everything he sees
Is just blue like him inside and outside
Blue is his house with a blue little window
And a blue corvette
And everything is blue for him and his self
And everybody around
Cos he ain't got nobody to listen to

I'm blue da ba dee da ba die...

I have a blue house with a blue window.
Blue is the color of all that I wear.
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too.
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue.
Blue are the people here that walk around,
Blue like my corvette, it's standing outside.
Blue are the words I say and what I think.
Blue are the feelings that live inside me.

I'm blue (da ba dee da ba die)
Because what color does books, wood and most everything else burn as?
With the initial impact, the burning of the material from the collision of the "star" is left red. After the fires have died down, the remaining energy from the "star" is shown as blue.

Typically, when an Angel is cast out of the heavens, such color schemes are present. ;)

Red or Orange.
OP actually has a super-valid argument here.
Something so hot such as a star would have to be at least 1 and a half times larger than our sun and burn at over 25,000 degrees Kelvin which is around 44540.6 Fahrenheit. I'm sure this star is burning much more higher than that above its surface as all stars do. Given the size of the star impact in the game, the hole left is no more than 300 feet wide which would be the equivalent to a 15 mile-wide crater (yeah, I did the math) at 60 degrees. Gravity from Earth would also speed it up a bit too.

To sum it up, the answer is: It's a game.

It is not an actual star.
We are not on Earth.
