The Fire Rings surrounding Fornax.

"By the Fire Rings of Fornax!"
Rithgar, cursing[src]

The Fire Rings of Fornax, also known as the Five Fire Rings of Fornax,[1] were one of the natural wonders of the galaxy, in which the planet Fornax appeared to be encircled by five rings of intense fire.

History[edit | edit source]

"Y'know, kid -- getting back to the Falcon's going be like flying thru the five Fire Rings of Fornax!"
Han Solo[src]

They were actually solar prominences attracted to the planet due to its close proximity to its star. Pirates were known to duel to the death within the rings, so that no combatant could escape unburned.

As the rings were a natural phenomenon instead of being created by intelligent beings, they were not included in the list of the Twenty Wonders of the Galaxy by the historian Vicendi in 10,000 BBY.[1] The side order dish Fornax rings was named after the natural phenomena.[2]
