Three Hundred One

‘Sky’ is an interesting word. I’ve always considered the sky to have no limits, but perhaps the word refers just to the visible atmosphere. Yet, if the word is about the visible atmosphere, we would not talk of the night sky. Are people who circle the earth in the International Space Station in the sky, or is their orbit beyond the limits of the sky? I suppose I should be comfortable with the ambiguity of my understanding.
