Currently working for NASA, hopefully will become a graduate student in Astronomy soon. Spend my free time coding and trying to improve my knowledge.

comment Do planetary surface temperatures change in unison in a solar system?
The equation assumes that the planet is a blackbody radiator. Anything with an atmosphere is most definitely not a blackbody. I do not offhand know if there is one good equation that can be used to estimate the temperature taking into account atmospheric effects since these would depend greatly on the composition of the atmosphere
