    The sky has NO color.  What you see is Scattered light from the Sun.

    Sort of a purple, but our vision perceives it as more blue.

    It is a light shade of Blue

     Known as Sky Blue for that reason

    As the Sun's Rays come through our Atmosphere

     They become Refracted, as Air is a Medium

    The Visable Spectrum runs from Red to Violet

    In other words the Colours of a Rainbow

    They can also be produced by shining a white light through a Prism

    It is another Medium

    Anyway, this Refraction and further Refraction from Water droplets in the Sky give us the Blue section of the Spectrum in the Sky

     That is why the Sky is Blue on a Sunny Day

    In the 1800's, a Scientist who became Lord Rayleigh

    studied it a lot

    It has become known as Rayleigh Scattering
