Why is sky blue?

Question asked by: knowitall

The sky is blue to the sunlight and the angle at which it hits the earth and also due to the chemical composition of the atmosphere.

This is why the sky appears different colours at different times as the angle at which the sun hits the earth changes, so you may get red skies at night and so forth.
