The sky (or celestial dome) is everything that lies above the surface of the Earth, including the atmosphere and outer space.
In the field of astronomy, the sky is also called the celestial sphere. This is viewed from Earth's surface as an imaginary dome where the sun, stars, planets, and the moon are seen to be traveling. The celestial sphere is conventionally divided into regions called constellations. Usually, the term sky is used informally as the point of view from the Earth's surface; however, the meaning and usage can vary. In some cases, such as in discussing the weather, the sky refers to only the lower, more dense portions of the atmosphere.
During daylight, the sky appears to be blue because air scatters blue sunlight more than it scatters red. At night, the sky appears to be a mostly dark surface or region scattered with stars. During the day, the Sun can be seen in the sky unless obscured by clouds. In the night sky (and to some extent during the day) the moon, planets and stars are visible in the sky. Some of the natural phenomena seen in the sky are clouds, rainbows, and aurorae. Lightning and precipitation can also be seen in the sky during storms. Birds, insects, aircraft, and kites are often considered to fly in the sky. Due to human activities, smog during the day and light pollution during the night are often seen above large cities.

    Question News updates ruining film recordings

    Hi there. I use TVHeadend to record all my TV and use the Sky OTA EPG to schedule my recordings. The really irritating thing, however, is that certain channels (in particular those from Channel 5) have a 3-minute news break in the middle of the film. As such, I have to remember to record both...

    Sky Q?

    Is Sky Q still an option if I go back to sky after 2 years? Currently with Virgin but contract has expired. Fibre will be switched on in my area soon so ditching virgin and going for separate tv and broadband providers. Can't find any Sky Q offers. Don't want sky Glass as Tv looks horrible.
