What are some factors that determine the temperature of a planet?

    Whether a planet is in close proximity to a large star, such as our Sun, has a lot to do with its temperature.  Also, whether or not the planet has an atmosphere determines whether a planet’s temperature has a very extreme range.  One example of such a planet is Mercury, which is closest to the Sun but has no atmosphere.  Mercury can get very hot, up to 465 degrees C, and very cold, 184 degrees C.
