Why the sky is blue description

Why the sky is blue

How old were you when you asked your parents “ why the sky is blue?” Most people could say that the sky isn't really blue but can’t explain why. Here at Halsey Drive I am going to tell you the scientific explanation of why the sky is blue.

Firstly to know that the sky is really blue is that sunlight looks white but it is actually made up of all the colours of the rainbow. Just like sound light also travels in waves. The blue waves are short and bumpy and red is long and not as bumpy, however blue light is scattered every where because blue has shorter waves than the other colours. The other colours- red, orange and yellow- also bounce off the molecules but blue scatters the most and that is why the sky is blue.

On the sunlights way to Earth the waves travel in straight lines unless something gets in its way to reflect bend or scatter when it is coming down passing through the atmosphere. It then passes through lots of little tiny oxygen and nitrogen molecules that are made up in the atmosphere and float around in the sky. When it gets closer to the horizon the sky fades to a very light blue or even a white, this is because the light has traveled very far.

Overall the sky is blue because all the molecules in the  air have spread the sun’s light when it travels down to earth. As light travels down to earth in blue waves which are shorter and that means it gets distributed a lot more and this is what makes the sky blue.

Dear Prime Minister,   

Congratulations! You have finally done it to be Prime minister. I have been watching the election and you did the impossible especially for me. You have covered almost all the issues but there is one more that you should do for the next election. You have done very well but I believe you have missed out  one thing and it is you should reduce the age for vote from 18 to 16 years old, I hope you consider my reasons why 16 year olds should be able to vote.

Firstly I strongly believe that the young adults of New Zealand should be able to vote because they can do multiple jobs like pay taxes, join the army in one year, drive a car, babysit and with their parents permission they can get married. Even though the older adults may think that they are two young and immature I think the opposite because they can do all the things that I listed above.

Once again a huge congratulations. I really do hope you will take my reasons why 16 year olds should be able to vote.

Yours sincerely,

On my way to work

As I stand on the pavement waiting for the crossing light to change, I see a big shadow coming towards me. This creature is called Bob, he is as tall as a 15 story buildings and he is as fluffy as a poodle and breathes like Darth Vader. We are best friends and we both work at NASA. Bob said that he is going to be the first monster on the moon. “Morning Sebastian!” Bob says in a low grumbling voice coming to stand beside me on the footpath. Feeling excited, I give Bob a quick wave and wish him good luck on his journey. When the lights change Bob’s long rose toe nails do a massive scratch on the red car stopped next to him. “ Bye” we both say to each other as we walk in different directions towards our workplaces. .    

Good job Sebastian you used your tenses correctly, I loved your moment in time about Bob the monster who wants to go to the moon.
