The sky appears blue to us on a clear day, because the atoms of nitrogen and oxygen in the atmosphere separate the suns white light into its many colors, and scatter them throughout the atmosphere.

It is blue, simply put, because the blue light is refracted the most by air particles, more than any other color.

Because blue is the first color of "white light" to reach the sky. That is why you see other colors at sunset.

Hazzard, you sound like someone I know, and I feel very stupid whenever I talk to him.

Because of the way our atmosphere scatters light. Similar to the way that when the sun sets, the sky appears orange. In the daytime, more blue lighe is reflected.

Ok first of all we have an atmosphere. The sky is suppose to be gray. It reflects off of space causing it to be darker. Like if something that is transparent you can see through it. The sun makes the sky a bit lighter to be blue. And that's my hypothesis.

It's an illusion. if you look at the earth from space (or low quality pics Nasa gives us) you see that the earth sort of reflects which makes a small blue aurora, and it gives the sky color. When the sun goes down (well actually when the earth spins) the earth can't reflect this light so the aurora goes away and you see space (which is night)

At least that's what I think
