Temperature might be another answer
Zarecor says July 31, 2015 @ 20:58
Temperature is the correct answer
Edward Nygma says October 11, 2015 @ 10:03
These riddles are far too open ended with multiple correct answers.
This site has some good riddles, but definitely needs to work on the majority of its collection.
Dan says October 11, 2015 @ 19:25
I agree, this one could use some work to have just one answer. Temperature doesn’t work, since it moves up and down on thermometers. Suggestions are always welcome.

Im thinking sun or temerature

It can not be temperature…and how in the hell would it be rain? You guys are missing the keyword. At the same time….
Keekee kyrie says April 3, 2016 @ 22:02
If you want to technical about it a stair case doesn’t go up and down there are steps that are aligned so the person or object can go up and down so temperature could be one because a thermostat only measures temperature it is not the actual thing soooooooooooooo stair case and temperature
Keekee kyrie says April 3, 2016 @ 22:05
Brain it does not say at the same time and a stair case doesn’t go up and down at the same time you either go up at once or go down at once but I’m sure the question is not ment to be so technical nor serious so um yeah

Is the answer temperature? I feel like it is, but it moves up and down in a thermometer. is it stairs? but that doesn’t go up or down. People go up and down on it, but it doesn’t go up or down. could it be weight?
Scarlet says May 24, 2016 @ 17:14
maybe its something that goes up and down vertically like a pole or something like that.
Ann says May 26, 2016 @ 14:40
Susan says May 27, 2016 @ 14:43
I think the obvious answer is the Sun. It doesn’t move. We move around it. It goes up in the morning and it goes down at night but since We revolve around it. It is stationary.
The Sun. Technically the temperature does move. In order for it to go up the heat has to increase and in order to measure temperature you have to use a tool which shows the temperature moved up. Vice versa.
Nicole says June 19, 2016 @ 01:27
I say temperature. Those of you saying the sun, I disagree after getting technical with it. The sun rotates, therefore it moves. Temperature doesn’t move, it’s just represented by the material (which used to be mercury, idk what it is now) in a thermometer that goes up and down, but the actual temperature doesn’t move.

Dan says March 9, 2017 @ 18:56
The sun is spinning and orbiting around the milky way
Mike says March 9, 2017 @ 14:48
Natty says May 10, 2017 @ 14:59
It has to be temperature as this rises and drops(goes up and down) but cannot physically move, sun does move stairs don’t really go up n down
Sharon says May 10, 2017 @ 15:00
A clock, the hands go up and down but the clock base don’t move.

The sun is an obvious answer it does go up and down but it does not move that way.. a staircase is a physical object that doesn’t move only the objects on it does… But the sun goes up in the morning and down at night and it doesn’t change its position our perspective does

The sun does move and here is a site to prove it
So the only answers are an elevator as it goes up and down on the y axis but doesn’t move on the x or z axis.
Or a TV as you can move the channels up and down but the TV never moves.
