What are the Temperature of the Moon?
Temperature of the moon varies greatly since it had no atmosphere. At the equator on the side expose to the sun, the temperature can reach up to 120 oC At the very same equator on the dark side, the temperature is -200 oC, quite higher than average temperature of the surrounding space of -270 oC because the moon still have some heat from the core deep inside its' crust. If the earth had no atmosphere, the temperature would be the same as the moon.
