On September 13, 1922 the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth was reached in Al 'Aziziyah, Libya, a city in the north of Africa. The temperature that day was an incredibly hot 136°F (57.7°C)! That's about as hot as a cup of hot chocolate you might drink! Except instead of being comfortable in a cup, warming you up on a cool day, that's the temperature of the air around you! It would not be very pleasant at all, and that sort of heat can actually be dangerous.

North America isn't far behind Africa in terms of heat. The second hottest day ever was recorded in Death Valley, California, with a very hot 134°F.



I belive that the hottest day was when the earth was a big clump of magma.
