I’m so excited you stumbled upon this little corner of the ever changing mystery of writing. The ever eluding story, fiction or nonfiction. I write about all things questionable and what isn’t? Little kids fire questions that we all asked at one time or another. Everything is a mystery, beginning with, “Why is the sky blue?” When was the last time you asked that one?
A clear cloudless day-time sky is blue because molecules in the air scatter blue light from the sun more than they scatter red light. When we look towards the sun at sunset, we see red and orange colors because the blue light has been scattered out and away from the line of sight.
Wow, finally got the answer.
THUNDER? Here’s another, especially important for those of us that are scared to death of thunder. Are thunderstorms when God’s clapping or are the clouds banging together as thought by Aristotle
in the fourth century BC, in an early speculation that it was caused by the collision of clouds
? Nope, neither, thunder is caused by lightening, a loud rumbling or crashing noise heard after a lightning flash due to the expansion of rapidly heated air.
