Sky refers to anything that is above the surface of the earth.
From the ground, we can see the space and infinite distance, and we call that the sky. We can see thousands of stars and some planets too, which certainly makes it look more beautiful.
From the ground, the sky appears as blue. However, this changes with sunrises and sunsets when the sky is colored in shades of red, orange, purple. Sometimes it appears in color grey, too, due to nimbus clouds. In reality, the color of the sky is actually bluish violet, which is the reflection of the huge water bodies on earth. Check out our sky quotes that will surely lift your spirit, from book quotes about the sky, from poetry, song and more.
