Also to know is, what makes a red sunset?
Small particles of dust and pollution in the air can contribute to (and sometimes even enhance) these colors, but the primary cause of a blue sky and orange/red sunsets or sunrises is scattering by the gas molecules that make up our atmosphere. In this way, clouds act as a screen on which nature's colors are painted.
What does it mean when the sunset is pink?
This means that the light coming through has not bounced off of dust and gases or clouds that would turn it blue, giving us light in shades of red, yellow, pink, etc. Small aerosol particles scattered in the lower stratosphere contribute to the pink colour at sunset.
