Welcome to the richest planetary system in the Milky Way Galaxy.
This is a view of the exoplanet Sedona as seen from its twin world Sequoia. Both are habitiable Earth-like worlds of lesser mass than Terra. The lower gravity on Sequoia allows for surface rocks to repose at steeper angles than would ever be possible on Earth. The canyon lands of both worlds boast natural stone arches and spires of incredible spans and height. The trees growing on these upturned sandstones are each as tall as skyscrapers. They are taller than the tallest terrestrial redwoods. I have experienced starry nights under the Ponderosa pines of Flagstaff, Arizona which inspires this image. Imagine if Percival Lowell had a terrestrial planet hanging this close over his head when he explored the skies on Mars Hill with his telescope. There would have been no question of this being a living world. These planets share a common orbit about their sun at the L5 trojan point of a gas giant in the habitable zone. During their early formation, these proto-earths shared meteoric debris. This insured that if only one had developed microbial life the process of panspermia would insure that all of the worlds residing at this Lagrangian point would evolve complex life.
