What happens during an eclipse?

Moon passes between Sun and the Earth during the eclipse. Moon being closer to Earth and smaller diameter compared to the Sun, during the eclipse, parts of the Sun will continue to be visible – making it seem like the “Ring of Fire”.

How does the Ring of Fire look during the eclipse?

“Ring of Fire” as captured during previous solar eclipses looks like this. Depending on the part of the world the picture is being taken and the time of the day and weather conditions, the outer ring might be thin or blurry or wider.
