The sky is a visual feature of Minecraft worlds. It changes color depending on the time of day and other factors, and contains visual features such as the sun, moon and stars.

While visually and functionally related, the sky is distinct from fog, which can be considered its horizontal equivalent in cases. Like with fog, the sky's color can be changed depending on the current biome.

The sky is an exclusive element of the minecraft:overworld dimension effect.
