Question: Why is the sky orange when is snows?
Also, how is it orange? Most of the time, when there's a thunder storm, the sky gets green or purple, why is that also.
Good question...it's a difficult one to explain but i'll try. Separate from the dust and and billions of particles in the air while it's snowing or raining, is the sun light. Light from the sun is reflected differently each day, depending on the time, the horizon or angle of the sun on where we live, and the precipitation. If there is more precipation and water particles then the colors passing through our atmosphere will be more vibrant and they include shorter wavelengths...blue and violet. Now you take snowflakes, who have several different sides and angles and mix that with the sun at any given time and you're going to have a concentration of perhaps a red or golden tone. Try this, on a cold night, or middle of the day, especially when it's about to snow, look at the moon or the sun. You're going to see a halo...the particular name escapes me, but the light from the sun is defracted downward towards the earth. The halo is bright white with hints of orange and yellow showing through, the longer wave length colors.
So that's it, the snowflakes have more surface to bend the shorter length colors and disperse then. Rain drops act as prisms and focus all colors to a certain spot...hence the rainbow.
its a reflection of the street lights
I take my paintbrush and color it. :D
I think it has something to do with monocles.
