Out of curiosity, what interests you about physics? For example, is it a question like, why is the sky blue? Or, what happened at the beginning of the universe?

Sure, but at a deeper level, what is Rayleigh scattering? For example, is it caused by water vapor? If it is, then why are clouds white and not blue? In either case, the particles need to be around a tenth of a micron in size, smaller than a typical droplet of water vapor. Smoke, for example, will scatter blue and violet light more strongly, as do the feathers of some birds.
