If you are looking for a place to share your travel photos and stories, then try BigRoom.

The sunlit sky appears blue because air scatters short-wavelength light more than longer wavelengths. Since blue light is at the short wavelength end of the visible spectrum, it is more strongly scattered in the atmosphere than long wavelength red light. The result is that the human eye perceives blue when looking toward parts of the sky other than the sun.

Aww man, I would have loved to answer this question, but this is pretty much what I would say word for word. Darn you Josh, answering questions while I'm sleeping!
this is the only correct answer.
the reason the sky is blue is beacause the world used to be all water with no land but it got seperated by god so that`s why the sky is blue
