Why is the Sky Blue?
Some say it's due to the blue oceans.
Some think it's what's in the atmosphere(mostly nitrogen and oxygen).
Some believe it's because outer space is blue.
But truthfully, it has to do with the size of the particles in the Earth's atmosphere. They are considered "small" particles (much less than 1 nanometer across).
These small particles scatter sunlight as it passes through.
Sunlight contains all visible colours of light and more.
In the 1870s, a man named Rayleigh found that each colour (or wavelength) of light is scattered to a different degree.
More blue light than other colours is scattered out of the sunlight travelling through the atmosphere.
This creates a diffuse blue glow and makes the sun appear yellow in colour.
When the sun is lower in the sky, sunlight travels a longer distance through the atmosphere to reach an observer.
This means it encounters more particles that scatter out most of the blue light, as well as some green and yellow light. This leaves mostly red light when the sunlight reaches the observer.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
