Form and distance of sky

Question ID: 37040

Allah says,Have they not looked at the heaven above them – how We structured it and adorned it and [how] it has no rifts?(sura qaaf: 6)
does this ayat proves that sky is so close that we could detect any rift on it with bare eyes?
imam tabari wrote in tafsir of sura baqarah (ayat 22) that, ibn masud, ibn abbas (ra.) and katadah (rah.) said that the sky is like a dome. Are those sahih?
other ayats also indicates that sky is so example, Allah says, And if they were to see a fragment of the heaven falling, they would say: A heap of clouds(sura at-tur 44)
and, “And when the sky is riven asunder, “( sura mursalat :9)

So close to us could mean light years away.
