As per the experts, this phenomena, also known as the ‘Ring of Fire’ takes place when the moon passes between Earth and the sun and blocks the light of the sun. However, if the moon is too far, it appears smaller and does not block the entire view of the sun. This creates what looks like a ring around the moon.

According to NASA, annular solar eclipses appear every 18 months somewhere on Earth and they are visible only a few minutes, unlike lunar eclipses.
