I thought that the color of the sky had something to do with the scattering of light! It’s nice to know I was right.
My dad used to tell us that the sky was blue because it reflected light from the ocean, which covered the majority of the world. I know that he said this because he didn’t know the real answer to the question, and this sounded like a good thing to say.
When I asked him why the sky was orange at sunset, he said it was because schools of orange fish came to the surface to feed at that time of day, and the sky reflected their color. It’s amazing what you will believe as a child.
