“look for oranges, reds, greys and turquoise

The source of the turquoise is ozone. During a lunar eclipse, most of the light illuminating the Moon passes through the stratosphere, and is reddened (can look orange) by scattering. However, light passing through the upper stratosphere penetrates the ozone layer, which absorbs red light and actually makes the passing light ray bluer” This can be seen as a turquoise fringe around the red.
