HOW OFTEN DOES THE RING OF FIRE PHENOMENON OCCUR?
There is no regular occurrence for the ring of fire display but they can happen every one or two years.
It depends when all three bodies are aligned although variations occur because the moon’s orbit around the Earth is elliptical causing the distance the moon is from the Earth to vary.
This in turn affects the type of solar eclipse seen when all three are aligned.
A ring of fire will appear today, although while Brits will be able to see the eclipse they won’t get to see the ring of fire.
People in northern Greenland, parts of nearby Baffin Bay, eastern Hudson Bay and northeastern Russia will sit in the path of the ring of fire.
