I have two planets that share an orbit around a pair of stars at a distance of 2.05 Earth-AU from the Barycenter of those two stars. (I can provide more details about the two stars, if needed)
Using this site, I can roughly estimate that the bond albedo for either planet is 65%. (For reference: Venus, brightest "star" in the sky, has an albedo of 75%, while the Moon has an albedo of 12%). Given that one of the planets is at the L5 (lagrange point 5) of the other, how bright would these planets appear in each others' skies?
Additional question: One of these planets has rings mostly made up of silicate rock. Would that change how visible it is to the other planet? Would these rings be visible from the other planet's surface?
I understand that any answers given would be guesswork, but I'm hoping for some ideas that will help add to the cultures I'm building.
Edit: Additional information
- Primary star has a mass of 1.3 sols and a luminosity of 2.197 sols
- Secondary star has a mass of 0.75 sols and a luminosity of 0.422 sols
- Primary planet has physical characteristics identical to Earth (aside from orbit of 2.05 au), except for the silicate rings
- Secondary planet has a radius of 5735 km (90% of Earth's) and a mass of 4.776 x 10^24 kg (80% of Earth's)
While I'm very grateful for all the advice about the orbit stability, I am much more concerned about the apparent brightness of the two planets to each other. Thank you so much to those who are taking the time to try to this out!
