Mie Scattering and Rayleigh Scattering

why the sky is blue and clouds are white: Rayleigh scattering vs particulate (Mie) scattering

Is the Rio Celeste in Costa Rica the bluest river in the world? The vibrant blue color occurs at the confluence of two smaller rivers, Sour Creek and Good View River, a spot that has earned the name El Teñidor (‘The Dyer’). The color is caused by Mie scattering, according to Amusing Planet, a phenomenon caused by the presence of large particles of a mineral called aluminosilicate in the river’s water, which reflect sunlight, giving rise to the vibrant blue hue.

The change of sky colour at sunset (red nearest the sun, blue furthest away) is caused by Rayleigh scattering by atmospheric gas particles which are much smaller than the wavelengths of visible light. The grey/white colour of the clouds is caused by Mie scattering by water droplets which are of a comparable size to the wavelengths of visible light.
