The stars are always there but the clarity of the sky varies. Also you need to be at a very, very dark site and have your eyes dark adapted for half an hour to see the sky properly.

In our own galaxy the Milky Way there are about a hundred thousand million stars and there about that number of galaxies in the observable universe. So...that's a lot! Twenty two zeros in the number...

there are a number of bright orange stars, as rowan said, need to know where you were, which direction you were looking and what time it was to know for sure which star.

Antares, Betelgeuse and Aldebaran are three bright orange stars.
