A special and unusual purple (magenta) haze episode was observed in Nanjing, China, at 17:00 on 22 December 2015. Many local and national news outlets reported on this event. One explanation of how a purple (combination of blue and red) light could be created is by green wavelengths being absorbed. Another way involves pollution gases or particles together with small liquid/water droplets, but this still needs further clarification. A third possibility is that the combination of transmitted red light from the sun and scattered blue light could produce a purple/magenta color in the sky. By Duanyang Liu. View this paper.
