How would planets look at the same distance as the Moon?

How would Mars, Venus, Neptune, Uranus, Jupiter, and Saturn look from the Earth’s surface if they were as far away as we are from the Moon?

Mercury is omitted because it’s only a bit bigger than the Moon and with its cratered surface it would look a lot like the Moon. The Earth would look like Venus except a little dimmer and much more colorful and interesting. (The surface of Venus is hidden beneath an almost featureless cloud layer.)
