    Default ...Why?

    Why the sky is bluer in elsewhere than in Singapore?
    Is it because of pollution?

    Cos we always kenar forrest fire haze and smog.

    OK lah ... panchange TS. It's because of diffraction. Many countries further away from the Equator presents much more 'atmosphere' for the sun rays to penetrate, causing light to bend and scatter differently.

    In some countries, you'll notice that the higher you go, the bluer the sky appears. Clear clear mountain range blue sky type of thing.

    In some major cities like in America, you'll get the most awesome looking sunsets over city skylines. That's also due to diffraction, but a slightly different kind - the type caused by humongous layers of dust, smoke, smog and pollution.

    Anyway, I just hamtam the info from hazy recollection of elementary science lessons hor, most of the time I was asleep during which anyways.
