It's translucent, actually; light passes through our atmosphere and changes in various ways. And during the day, our sky generally appears to be blue. The short wavelength light is absorbed by gas molecules... never mind. It just appears to be blue.

If the sky were transparent, we'd be looking at the stars during the day.
