Hottest and coldest place on Earth right now

Earthu2019s average temperature is 61 degrees F, 16C (if you listen to Google).


comagrees ! Now, according to the World Meteorological Organization, the coldest place on Earth is Vostok Station in Antarctica where it once reached minus 128.

6 F (minus 89.

2 C).

,The coldest, regularly inhabited place on Earth goes to the very happy and freezing cold people of Oymyakon, Russia, a small village in Siberia where it once hit a low of minus 96 F (minus 71 C).

,As far as the hottest place on Earth?u2026.


well, there is some disagreement there.

I will simply give you the facts (thatu2019s what I do after all).

,El Azizia, Libya, held the top hot spot for 90 years.

Temperatures allegedly climbed to 136.

4 F (58 C) on Sept.

13, 1922.

But the World Meteorological Organization stripped the town southwest of Tripoli of that distinction in 2012.

Apparently, the poor observer who died whilst taking the measurement was not considered u201ccredibleu201d.

So for now, the hottest place on Earth is Furnace Creek in Death Valley, California where is reached 134 degrees F (56.

7 C) on July 10th, 1913.

However, even a higher surface temperature was detected but it was not detected with a land -based measurement system but rather by a LANDSAT satellite.

In 2004 and again in 2005, the satellite detected a surface temperature in the Lut Desert in Iran, of 159.

3 F (70.

7 C).

Ouch!,I have to take credit twice for this answer.

I also answered the question u201cWhat is Earthu2019s Temperatureu201d for a member and felt it would answer this question quite well.

Thanks for your understanding!
