Impressive. Although I was asking if they had formed together, not all of a sudden thing if you didn't know. Or I could be completely wrong.
I'd imagine if Earth and Venus were formed together, orbiting eachother both planets would be extremely different. No landmasses as we know them, since Venus's gravity would affect the plates of the earth, I think. Venus would not have the 92 pressure atmosphere it has, It could be a world like ours if things went right.
I'm more for having a hot hellworld in the spot of our moon though. Those clouds of venus would reflect alot of light, and it would light up the sky at night. Making astronomy harder, but in place of that we get to look at a beautiful ball of churning clouds and poisonous gasses.
Venus has always fascinated me. I love it. Its a planet I would like to see up and close, but I'm sure everyone would.
Man I have alot more questions. I like your answers.
What if Jupiter had Impressive rings like Saturn? Think a large opaque disk, and having the moons further out from Jupiter so they would not effect the rings of Jupiter. Say....a few million years ago...Io, a large asteroid struck the moon, pulling it closer to its mother planet, the roche limit tearing the moon to fine granules. Would Jupiter be brighter in the sky?
Another thing, lets say in this same hypothetical universe, Jupiter and its moons are closer to the sun, sucking up the asteroid belt as we know them.
There's a lot of answers and speculations. It depends on mine or yours imagination. That's what makes us special. But, if it's tide-locked then we wouldn't see Venus on the night sky. Or I am completely wrong. Thing is the same as our moon. It's tide-locked, so we see same side always.
There's just tons of questions and, I would like to say: Butterfly Effect Space Events.
Where something could happen in space, but didn't.
I don't believe in Big Bang theory and billions of years of formation. But, if we would discuss about formation and positions of, let's say Jupiter, as you asked. It already has rings, but they aren't as magnificent as Saturns. If it had one, then it would be the best planet of our Solar System. By the moons, size of planet, and even rings. Did you know that even every single piece of rock in rings have effect on other rocks and moons? Every piece has it's own gravity. You probably knew that, but wanted to mention it.
If an asteroid hit the Io, and went on the way to Jupiter, while also going into Jupiters rings, Io would be bombarded with those rocks. Probably would be nice watching it. And when it would hit the Jupiter, it would cause the impact that never happened before to Jupiter. As Io would go to the Jupiter, it would also pull the rings into the Jupiter. It would be indeed nice watching.
Now on that hypothetical universe. You also probably know this, but it is speculated that there was long ago a planet in that asteroid belt. Then something happened, and it got destroyed. I think that planet X (Nibiru) destroyed it. But that's again off-topic. If Jupiter got there somehow with those moons, it would be the same bombardment as with the rings and Io. Moons would get off Jupiters track and would change orbits and some moons would maybe escape and, maybe would be headed to the Earth... Well that's dark. And I think with this scenario Jupiter would be brighter in the sky.
Space is fascinating, a lot of questions, but little answers. I would now use mu homemade unfinished telescope to look at the Moon and trying to get the best view.
I also have questions, like, what if this what we know now isn't correct? Those measurements, and other things.
I was fascinated about light. And I would thing of all possible things that people just take for granted. What if what we know about light isn't correct? I would always question myself about everything. Mostly at the night time. Like now. It is 2.15 as I am writing this sentence.
Hope you are enjoying questioning and finding answers, like I does.
