Scattering of light is defined as the phenomenon of throwing light rays in random directions when it falls on a suspended particle.


The color of the clear sky during day-time is due to the phenomenon of scattering of light by the molecules of air and other particles in the atmosphere and since they have a size smaller than the wavelength of the visible light, so the particles scatters blue color light rays effectively than that of longer wavelength color.


At Sunrise or Sunset, the reddish appearance of Sun is due to scattering of light and since Red color has highest wavelength and is scattered least.
