Why Is The Sun Yellow and The Sky Blue? – MinutePhysics

Why is the sun yellow and the sky blue? Why can we see the stars at night? Why is space black? And why is the sky more red, orange, and even pink at sunset? In this Minute Physics episode, we leap into “the grand ballet of light,” starting with the fact that the sky isn’t actually blue at all.
