If you live in a swamp, the 'sky' is brown water.

Trish,

In answer to your question on "why is the sky blue?" here is the answer.

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.

'cause God thought it was pretty \:\) I was just a little kid and the explanation sounded perfectly reasonable to me ;\)

If you're answering a post, you have to hit the reply button, rather than just typing. When you hit reply, you'll see the emotions icon.

I think your mom's explanation is a very nice one.It makes us look at the world in a not so clinical way.

I judge you think too much. Take some time to feel. It is more fun and less work. Well the good feelings are more fun and less work
