Default Re: Problem's Explaining the Sky's Blue Colour.

Actually the reason why the sy is blue is very easy to explain.

Light from the sun reflect off the ocean and into space, the darkness of space amplifies this colour and the light entering our eye reflects it as blue.

light is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that our eyes can see. Light from the sun or a light bulb may look white, but it is actually a combination of many colours filtered by our eyes, for example looking through a telescope reduces 3/4 of all light visible by the eye, the same as our atmosphere does, so our eyes filter the colour and blue is the easiest colour our eyes can see so the sky is perceived as blue when in fact it is many colours
