The big desert of Lut is situated in the eastern region of Iran. It is part of the northern of the two deserts belts which encircle the Earth. The Sun heats these two belts of land more than any other part of Earth and creates deserts. A NASA satellite recorded surface temperatures as high as 71 °C (159 °F), the hottest surface temperature recorded on Earth.
