What is the temperature on the moon?

View Answer
Extremely hot and also very cold on the other side of the moon.
Daytime on one side of the moon lasts about 13 and a half days, followed by 13 and a half nights of darkness. So, the atmosphere of the moon is both hot and cold at the same time. When the sun shines, the temperature rises up to 260 F (127 C), which is more than the temperature of boiling water. When there is no shining sun, the temperature comes below -280 F (minus 173 C).
