The sky is not blue.  It is in fact a shade of cyan.

Conquistador now looked what you have done, it gonna take a week to get the dog back to normal again.

To any educated person who is not a complete moron, the sky is not technically blue since the oxygen within the sky reflects blue light, not the sky itself.  The sky itself nayurally reflects the shade of cyan so obviously it would be cyan.

Seriously, how is this even an argument?

Hit the door poindexter. It's blue and it always will be.

Conquistador

The light you see is blue, the sky isn't.  Maybe you want to reread that Goldendog...maybe a couple more times!

Conquistador

Lol, look it up guys...or take a telescope and look at a green tree without it and then look at through the telescope...still green...look at the 'blue' sky and then look at it through the telescope...

Where are you? I'd like to pay you a special, leaping from behind a bush visit.

Then maybe you could look up from the gutter and muse to yourself how the sky was blue all along.

P.S. You sound drunk.

kco

goldendog

I am an educated person and a complete moron, and I thought it was blue.  Besides, your telescope is probably broken.

Any reasonable person who is not a complete moron, knows that there is no such object called "the sky" which can be seen better with a telescope. It's just the space above the ground. Since that space can contain any variety of gaseous substances which reflect light, then the colour of the sky would be whatever color an individual sees from their perspective.

Yup,

Sometimes it APPEARS to be blue, and at other times it Appears orange.

The sky, however has no color at all, that is to be pinned down--it is a reflective surface.
