World: Lowest Temperature

Record Value: -89.2°C (-128.6°F)
Date of Record: 21 / 7 [July] / 1983
Geospatial Location: Vostok, Antarctica [77°32’S, 106°40’E, elevation: 3420m (11,220ft)]

The lowest natural temperature ever directly recorded on Earth was at the Soviet Vostok Station in Antarctica on July 21, 1983. The recorded temperature was approximately −128.6 degrees Fahrenheit (−89.2 degrees Celsius). This incredibly frigid temperature was measured using ground-based instruments and is among the coldest ever observed on the planet’s surface.

Antarctica, particularly the high plateaus, is known for its extremely low temperatures due to its elevation, dry air, and isolation from warmer oceanic influences. These conditions contribute to the extreme cold experienced in certain regions, making them ideal for such record-setting low temperatures.
