    The annual solar eclipse with the so-called 'ring of fire' is visible in the Southern Hemisphere on Sunday, February 26. This natural phenomenon occurs when the Moon moves far away enough from the Earth, passing in front of the Sun without blocking it entirely. The Sun remains visible, creating an effect that looks like a 'ring of fire.'
