The Earth's atmosphere holds a lot of water vapor (hence clouds and rain. This water tends to distort the light that comes from the sun, causing it to refract, like a prism. This is how Rainbows form (the increased amount of water in a specific location forms a giant prism in the air, causing the light to split into its' component wavelengths, which visually becomes a rainbow). This same theory is applied in a much smaller degree by the water vapor in the air all the time, causing the blue light wavelengths to be directed towards the surface of the Earth more efficiently than the other wavelengths, giving anything standing on the ground the appearance that the sky is blue. This is also why, at dawn and dusk, the sky appears to change colors to yellow, orange and red -- the curvature of the Earth allows these light wavelengths to be refracted to the ground at their optimum angles. So I guess if you think about it, we are all standing in the middle of a rainbow every day :-).

­The­re is a physical phenomenon called Rayleigh scattering that causes light to scatter when it p­***** through particles that have a diameter one-tenth that of the wavelength (color) of the light. Sunlight is made up of all different colors of light, but because of the elements in the atmosphere the color blue is scattered much more efficiently than the other colors.
When you look at the sky on a clear day, you can see the sun as a bright disk. The blueness you see everywhere else is all of the atoms in the atmosphere scattering blue light toward you. Because red light, yellow light, green light and the other colors aren't scattered nearly as well, you see the sk­y­ as blue.

### Why is the sky blue, @url=sky_blue

The sky is perceived as blue due to the interactions of light photons interacting with the chemical molecules that are in our atmosphere. The atmosphere scatters light photons to the violet end of the light wave length spectra. There is also knowledge of the human eye's sensitive perception to certain wavelengths of light what causes the sky to be blue.

In short, particles in the atmoshere refract light and disperse the colour to the violet spectra, as well as the human eye being more sensitive to blue light of the spectra!

### My son gave me a Blue Nile Cushion Cut Sky Blue Topaz Bracelet for mother's day. It was stolen. I am trying to replace it, but it is no longer sold at Blue Nile. How can I find another one.

You only have a few options : 1: You could contact "blue nile" and ask them if they would make you one. 2 : if you would like me to track one down? you can send me an e-mail at conrad.classey@hotmail.com. All I'll do its contact various online jewelers or antique dealers and find the blue Nile Ring/Sky Blue/Cushion Cut.

Hope you get your ring back, or if not I'll happily await your e-mail.

### Why is the sky blue

The atmosphere is the mixture of gas molecules and other materials surrounding the earth. It is made mostly of the gases nitrogen (78%), and oxygen (21%). Argon gas and water (in the form of vapor, droplets and ice crystals) are the next most common things. There are also small amounts of other gases, plus many small solid particles, like dust, soot and ashes, pollen, and salt from the oceans.

The blue color of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air.

However, much of the shorter wavelength light is absorbed by the gas molecules. The absorbed blue light is then radiated in different directions. It gets scattered all around the sky. Whichever direction you look, some of this scattered blue light reaches you. Since you see the blue light from everywhere overhead, the sky looks blue.

As you look closer to the horizon, the sky appears much paler in color. To reach you, the scattered blue light must pass through more air. Some of it gets scattered away again in other directions. Less blue light reaches your eyes. The color of the sky near the horizon appears paler or white.
