In the eclipse of the Sun, called the ring of fire, the Sun was still far away from Earth because it was far away from the Earth, although part of the Sun was still visible from behind the Moon, although a large part of the Sun was covered. In this solar eclipse, since the Moon makes the Sun seem hollow, this type of solar eclipse is called a ring of fire.
As the Moon continues its movement in front of the Sun, the Sun becomes more visible and only the high hills on the Moon’s surface can partially block the Sunlight. NASA described the dark lines in the photograph taken as shadows of the mountains on the surface of the Moon.
