As we know, the red color of the totality of a Moon eclipse is due to the light being refracted by the Earths atmosphere, which also passes through the highest layers of the stratosphere, especially the one of the ozone. The light consequently gets shades of blue-turquoise, that create a delicate fringe at the lines of the Earths shadow projected onto Moons surface.
