Which planet experiences the widest range of temperatures

Mercury experiences the widest range of temperatures in our Solar System.

Because it's a very slowly-rotating planet, and because it has no blanketing atmosphere, its "dark side" can stay that way for a long time, allowing temps to plunge hundreds of degrees. On the other hand, being the closest planet to the sun, Mercury's hot side is very hot indeed!

The best estimates are that Mercury's hot side gets up to 465 deg. C, and the cold side can chill to -184 deg. C. That's a range of 649 deg. C, or 1,168 deg. Fahrenheit.
Mercury the day time temprature is as high as 800 degrees and at night it is as low as -300 degrees. There is little atmosphere to retain the heat giving such an unusuall temprature change.
