To me the colors of January are black, white and blue. For now the greens are gone. The naked trees make silhouettes against the stark cold sky. The sky seems true blue. What makes the sky blue? It just so happens I shared the answer from Wikipedia below so you all will be in the know, too! Now, what makes the clouds appear white and gray? This answer is more difficult as there is not public knowledge released about the created clouds. In my sky, I can say what determines the cloud colors is chemicals from jets. Have a look at the photostudies and a look at your sky. Maybe you have more questions than answers, also. Makes you wonder. Enjoy!

Diffuse sky radiation
- The Arago point, named after its discoverer, is customarily located at about 20° above the antisolar point; but it lies at higher altitudes in turbid air. The latter property makes the Arago distance a useful measure of atmospheric turbidity.
- The Babinet point, discovered by Babinet in 1840, is located about 15° to 20° above the sun, hence it is difficult to observe because of solar glare.
- The Brewster point, discovered by Brewster in 1840, is located about 15° to 20° below the sun; hence it is difficult to observe because of solar glare.
