Can this really count as a sky light?

The City of Aztec has built a new public library, one twice, no three times, as big as the current public library. My favorite feature is the tower in the children's area. From the outside it resembles a Navajo hogan, but the foreman of the construction company said it was designed with more of the idea of a "modern castle," feel. There's a skylight in the ceiling of the tower, through which you get a clear view of the blue, blue New Mexico sky.

The foreman saw me looking and informed me that the crew is awaiting an order of green, blue and white opaque screens which they will suspend just below the sky light to mimic sky and clouds.

As opposed to the actual sky I'd been admiring.
