Question and answer
Why is the sky blue?
The blue color of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths (red, orange and yellow) pass straight through, while shorter-wavelength blue light is absorbed by air molecules and radiated in all directions.
