Dear fellow illustrators,

 

I found this beautiful picture online and I assume this is made with AI. I think the designer used a gradient tool for this but I couldn't make it happen. Can someone help?

This is the first thing that comes to mind:

The top image is composed of the bottom three objects: a radial gradient from a darker colour to the background colour, one of a light colour to the background colour, and a gradient on a stroke from RGB black to RGB white (the same size or larger than the other gradient ellipses.

 

Place the stroke gradient over the light one, select both and create an opacity mask (button in the Transparency panel). Then place the resulting group over the dark gradient ellipse.
