How does the ozone layer stay above the air?

As oxygen is O2 and Nitrogen is N2(the two main parts of air) how does the ozone layer stay on top of it and not sink when it is plainly heavier being at O3

Answer:
ozone is created by the suns polarising rays and so it is created up high in the stratosphere. This means that oxygen is turned into ozone up high up and as it falls turns back into oxygen.
O2 becomes O3 w/ help from the sun-UV's. O3 has a very short life minutes. It can not fall very far. Right now ozone is being decomposed by CFC's. ozone is part of the air. pollution if near the surface. A life saver if protecting life from UV's.
