Element number 8 and a member of the Chalcogen Family or Group 16 of the periodic table.

Ozone is an allotrope of oxygen, and is much less stable. Ultraviolet light cause it to decompose in our ozone layer, therefore it shielding people  below it.

From- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozone-

Ozone is a pale blue gas, slightly soluble in water and much more soluble in inert non-polar solvents such as carbon tetrachloride or fluorocarbons, where it forms a blue solution. At –112 C, it condenses to form a dark blue liquid. It is dangerous to allow this liquid to warm to its boiling point, because both concentrated gaseous ozone and liquid ozone can detonate. At temperatures below –193 C, it forms a violet-black solid.
