Wants to Maintain Gd!!

I was lying down earlier looking out at the sky and it was around 4pm. The sky was mainly blue but on one side it was like white. I'm just wondering why this was.

was it like the horizon or something? If so I got a little tear from me when I was looking at it, does that mean I was looking at the sun or something and it was bad for me?

Hi Mini,

I found this very good explanation below on Science Made Simple.



WHY IS THE SKY BLUE?


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. Source: Blue Sky - Why is the Sky Blue?
