The molecules of gases in our atmosphere scatter sunlight; the color scattered the most without being absorbed is blue - that's what we see. When the sun is down, although the same effect is true for starlight, it's so dim that we can't detect the blue. So, the atmosphere appears to be clear to our eye.
The effect is called "Rayleigh scattering."

Named after Lord Rayliegh
Who proposed that Sunlight was refracted by coming through a Medium, our Atmosphere
As through a Prism the white light is split into Various wavelengths
The shortest one is what we observe
And that is the Colour Blue, softened by the SeaSource(s): Lord Rayleigh

When light travels through the atmosphere, red, orange, yellow and green light and the colors in-between, travel in pretty much straight lines. So, unless you're looking at the light source you won't see them. Blue light, however, is bounced around over and over again until it is coming toward you from every direction.
It's kind of like if you're in an empty field and someone is shooting at you with a tennis ball cannon. You won't even know if you're being shot at until you're hit and then you instantly learn the direction of the cannon. But if you're inside a smallish room with hard walls the tennis balls can hit you from every direction and you don't learn where the cannon is.Source(s): [n] = 10ⁿ

When light from the Sun comes to Earth, it consists seven colours like that of a rainbow. The seven colours have different wavelengths with red being the highest and blue being the lowest. During the day, the blue wavelengths are comfortable for our eyes to perceive, so we see the sky as blue, but really the sky consists of seven different colours

it isn't but it is the only color the eyes' perceive
