In what process sky colors (including blue sky and red sun) are created?

iridescence
Rayleigh scattering
mirage
atmospheric refraction
Rayleigh scat­ter­ing, named after the British physi­cist Lord Rayleigh (John William Strutt), is an elastic scat­ter­ing of light or other elec­tro­mag­net­ic ra­di­a­tion by par­ti­cles much smaller than the wave­length of the ra­di­a­tion.
