This weekend is going to be a scorcher and it's going to feel like the sun is burning a hole right through us, and maybe it is. You won't believe how high Texas ranks when it comes to skin cancer risk.
A transit is an event in which the planet moves directly between the earth and the sun. This means if you look at the sun (with a special filter as to not blind yourself), you can see the planet move across the surface of the sun. This type of event is much rarer than a meteor shower.
