In addition to 'dry data', there are short sections entitled: "What Colour is the Sky?" "and "How Big is That Thing in the Sky?" and I'm still working on "How Bright is That Thing in the Sky?", which should help with description. Although the sky colour does have a big "It depends" at the beginning. Because it does. Not as simple as the colour of the star or even the major component of the atmosphere: take Venus, Earth, Mars, and Titan for a spin (or a look-see?) and you see what I mean.
