Scheat is the proper name of the star β Pegasi in the constellation Pegasus. Scheat is unusual among other bright stars in having such a relatively cool surface temperature in relation to other stars such as the Sun, although this is due in large part to its size, being a red giant. Scheat is also an irregular variable star, its brightness changing slowly over an irregular period.
