Why is the sky sometimes red at night and is it similiar to a blue
sky during the day?
No, the red sky you see at dusk is the result of dust and smoke
particles in the air which absorb blue light but allow red light to pass
through.. well, I guess in a way it's similar, since the blue sky you see during
the day is the result of the water in the air absorbing RED light and allowing B BLUE light to pass through.
Sorry about that..
