•Junidr Editor Quit on- BLUE SKY QUESTION: Why does the sky — as well as a distant mountain — look blue? ANSWER: Our earth is covered with a dense layer of the precious air we must have in order to breathe. Suspended in this are countless specks of dust and other materials. It is the sunlight, glancing off these, which makes the sky look light. Without an atmosphere containing such particles, the sky would appear black as it does in outer space. The white light from the sun contains all the colors of the rainbow. But the particles in the air bend or refract this white light and so scatter the rainbow colors. Blue is the color which, because of its particular wave length, is more widely scattered than the other colors, and this is why the sky appears blue on a sunny day. When you look at something distant, you are looking through air with its widely scattered blue rays, so things far away take on a bluish tinge. Since there is always some water vapor in the ah*, distant things will also look lighter. When there is a great deal of water vapor in the air, as on a cloudy day, this will overcome the blue rays and everything will look gray.
