    Without sounding so stupid, why is it so cold at night?

      Here you go,
      Most of the heat at Earth’s surface comes from sunlight. During the day in a desert such as the Sahara, a lot of sunlight heats the ground, which then heats the air. At night, that heat escapes into space, which makes the temperature in the desert drop very low. In fact close to freezing. What’s more is if you are camping in the desert a good quality sleeping bag is a must, else you’ll be brr all night, seriously.

      In areas that are not deserts, clouds prevent some sunlight from reaching the ground. That’s why the days are not so hot. Clouds also stop much of the heat from radiating into space, which explains why the nights are not so cold
