When a complete solar eclipse happens, the moon blocks the sun majorly, while a partial eclipse occurs, the Sun gets partially covered by the moon. When you see the ring of fire effect during Solar eclipse, that is the moon which covers the Sun from the middle. As the moon is smaller than the Sun, it looks like a ring of flame surrounded by a dark disk. Some people snapped the partial solar eclipse and some captured the light-shadow effects on the Earth. So, take a look at these amazing pictures and videos. The ones are here:
