How do I set the color of a light with a script?

Actually it seems more that I know how to do this, but Unity does not.

var light1 : GameObject;

light1.light.color = (1,0,0); //this gives an "expecting ),found ','."

or like this:

light1.light.color = red; //this gives an "unknown identifier: "red"."

And I'm setting the intensity of this same light (dragged to the light1 slot in the inspector) in the previous line, the same way, with no error. What gives?

You have to actually specify a Color. As in `Color(1.0, 0.0, 0.0)` or ``.
