Question: Why is the sky orange and the sun purple?
+Those are not the colors of either one. Are you by chance viewing a re-touched photograph someone gave you?
wrong ! the sky is yellow and the sun is blue !
Dust in the atmosphere can colour both the sky background and the sun and moon. Currently dust from a volcano on Russian Pacific is intermittently colouring dusk and dawn skies a bluish/ lavender in the northern hemisphere including UK - check www.spaceweather.com for recent pics/news and my vid

Then tell you, I'm on Planet Earth, and right now, my face is turning blue. Why is that?
It turned blue after I read this question.
