The Ring of Fire occurs during an annular or partial solar eclipse.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Moon.

During an annular eclipse, the Moon is far away from the Earth so the Moon appears smaller in the sky.

As small as it appears, it is not completely blocked, so when it passes in front of it it leaves a circular, orange-red ring-like border for the human eye.
