What would the sky look like if you saw in the Uvb (290-320 nm)
or near IR (700-1500 nm) instead of the visible (400-700 nm)?

From Liou pg 93. o is the molecular anisotropy parameter as the polarizability is really a tensor. The
refractive index relationship is in relation to the polarizability of air. o = 0.035 for air.
