What is a ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse?

Posted

Unlike in a total eclipse, the moon in a ring-like eclipse is unable to completely cover the sun, leaving a thin halo of light at its maximum phase. Such an eclipse happens when the moon is farther away in its elliptical orbit around the Earth, appearing smaller as a result.
