    This picture cannot properly convey how spectacularly azure blue the sky is here in Sweden, but I wanted to share it with you nonetheless. This picture was taken about 10:30 on Wednesday morning. I don't know why the sky is so blue here. Perhaps it's because the air is so clean or that we're so far north. All I know is that it's so blue it's almost unreal:

    Does the air have fairly low humidity in it, Puss? Out here in the Rocky Mountain west the skies are usually a dark blue. My late wife, who was from the NYC area, couldn't believe how blue the sky was when she moved here, and in fact marveled at it until the day she died. Once she freaked out when she saw the moon in the daytime.
    "WHAT'S THAT?!!"
    Me: "What? The moon?"
    She: "It can't be. It's the middle of the day."

    And I know from my days of flying, the visibility out here is normally 60 miles or so, while further east it's more often 5-10 miles... or less. I think it's mostly the humidity in the air.

    Yes, the air is quite dry here especially in the winter and early spring. It's so dry that I'm constantly applying hand cream and spraying leave-in conditioner in my hair to counteract static electricity. I guess that explains it.

    I think that would explain the blue sky. It's usually quite humid here in the summer, so our sky tends to be hazy, especially in the middle of the afternoon. But the moon is often visible all day long, it just depends on where it is in the sky.

    Very deep blue, very pretty. It is the same where I live, which is closer to the tropics. We have a lot of sunny weather all year round, and because we are inland we have very low humidity. I think the blue-ness is the low humidity (I have awful trouble with my contacts drying out all of the time).
