What Is A Ring Of Fire?

Notably, a solar eclipse occurs when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth.

An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is farthest from the Earth. As there is a long distance, the Moon appears smaller and cannot block the entire light of the Sun. Due to this, a ring of sunlight is created around the moon. This is referred to as the ‘Ring of Fire’.
