Well for all the kids who paint on their little canvases or to graphic designers who make the vast reaches of space out of pure imagination. Here is something that will turn your world around!

THE SUN IS NOT YELLOW!!!

So which color do you think it is? 🙂

Contrary to what we see in the sky, and what we believe out of textbooks for all our life, the sun is actually white in color. 

Well. not exactly white (see right). In hex it is #fff5f2, and in RGB it would be (255-245-242)

The reason the sun looks yellow to us is because the Earth’s atmosphere scatters light from the sun, which makes the sky look blue. The most prominent colors scattered are blue and violet, hence leaving the majority of yellowish light unscattered and hence the sun seems yellow to us.

Well now we know the real color of the sun, what next?

How about that joke I promised 😛 😛

Three men were in a NASA conference room to decide how to spend $10 billion.

“I think we should put our men on Mars!” said the first man.
“Ooh, good idea,” said the other two.
“I think we should put our men on Venus!” said the second man.
“Ooh, good idea,” said the other two.
“I think we should put our men on the Sun!”
“How are you going to do that?”
“Easy. We go at night.”
