Surely you have maybe pondered it but still don’t comprehend??

I will explain ..

It’s all due to the scattering and deflecting of the blue wavelength
Some odd reason : the mostly nitrogen particles in the air are the same exact size of the blue light .

This Keeps the blue scatter all day long !!
The blue scatter is why you cannot see stars during the day .
Now when the “ earth rotates away from the sun .
What happens ??


The sun is out of blue light and you only get red lights ; hence , you see a reddish amber sun set

thank you
I will be posting more of this

Yes the atmosphere is blue. It is also quite thin.

Blue light is scattered more than other wavelengths by the gases in the atmosphere, surrounding Earth in a visibly blue layer when seen from space onboard the ISS at an altitude of 335 km (208 mi).[1]

Because it is looking down on the American political scene.

Yep, very thin atmosphere relatively. It's like a thin bubble around the Earth. "Thin" being a relative thing though.

I thought because an "expert" or an empty suit said it was- imagine my shock when I looked and they were correct! Even a blind squirrel can find a nut-
