    I guess it depends on what you consider "sky". It might be more informative to learn why you see blue in the sky:

    Why is a red herring called a red herring? It is neither red, nor a herring.

    A: What's green and is nailed to the wall?
    B: I don't know.
    A: A red herring.
    B: But a red herring isn't green.
    A: So paint it green.
    B: But a red herring isn't nailed to the wall.
    A: So nail it to the wall.
