Expert Answer

When light passes through atmosphere, it is first adsorbed by air molecules, dust particles, smoke and water droplets and then re-radiated in various directions. This phenomenon is called scattering of light.

Examples of scattering of light
    1. Sun looks red at sunset and sunrise.
    2. Sky looks dark to astronomers.
