Our sun is a spectral type G (yellow) star, but seen in space, it is white. I understand lots of its wave lengths have been scattered by Earth's atmosphere, so it does not seem white from Earth.
The question is, if this "scattering" happens to the sun's light, why are we still seeing other white star white in colour at night? In other words, why do many other white stars like our sun not appear yellow, but still white?
Excuse me if this question hardly makes sense.
