    I think the real question here is why can't you and yours sister discuss this question?  Perhaps you should sit down together and each give your side of the story and see if there is a middle point you can both agree on.  If not don't go outside.

    The sky is blue because of the way sunlight interacts with our atmosphere. Sunlight is made up of all the different colors of light. As sunlight reaches our atmosphere, molecules in the air scatter the blue light but let the red light pass through. https://learning.covoji.com/curious-world/the-sun/

    Why ??

    One of you is an Idiot

    It is caused by Rayleigh Scattering

    Named after Lord Rayleigh who first suggested it

    (Below)

    As you can see by the picture it was some time ago

    The Sun's Rays travel through the Earth's Atmosphere

     It travels at different angles, some very acute

    There is Water Vapour in the Atmosphere amongst other Gases

     Water Vapour is translucent particles which refract the Sun's White Rays into a longer Wavelength, which is Blue

    .The Short Answer: Sunlight reaches Earth's atmosphere and is scattered in all directions by all the gases and particles in the air. Blue light is scattered more than the other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. This is why we see a blue sky most of the time.

    because that's the color God painted it.

    Just kidding - Blue light is scattered in all directions by the tiny molecules of air in Earth's atmosphere. Blue is scattered more than other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. This is why we see a blue sky most of the time

    Blue light is scattered in all directions by the tiny molecules of air in Earth's atmosphere. Blue is scattered more than other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. This is why we see a blue sky most of the time. Closer to the horizon, the sky fades to a lighter blue or white.
