The sky is blue because of the scattering of sunlight by the atmosphere. The longer waves scatter more than the shorter waves, and blue light is scattered more than other colors.

The sky is blue because of a process called Rayleigh scattering. In the atmosphere, tiny particles scatter the sunlight in all directions. The longer wavelengths, such as red and orange, scatter less strongly than the shorter, blue and violet wavelengths. As a result, more blue light is scattered and reaches our eyes, giving the sky its blue color.
