Millennium - Celestial And Terrestrial Beings
The "Second Coming" of Jesus Christ is also called "Judgment Day" because all of Heavenly Father's children (who lived on this planet in mortality) will be "judged" to determine what will happen to them after the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
At the Second Coming this planet will be changed into a Celestial planet and only those who qualify for the Celestial Kingdom or the Terrestrial Kingdom will be allowed to live on this planet.
So it makes sense that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is also called Judgment Day!!!
1) Celestial and Terrestrial beings who are dead before the Second Coming are resurrected as Celestial Beings and they stay on this planet forever as Celestialized Beings.
2) Celestial and Terrestrial beings who are alive at the time of the Second Coming are changed in a moment into Celestial Beings and they stay on this planet as Celestial beings forever.
I should clarify that the term "forever" just means until they have some other church calling which might take them off of this planet but they will remain Celestial Beings forever regardless of where they are living at any given time.
Millennium - Telestial Beings
The Millennium is the first one thousand years after the "Second Coming" of Jesus Christ!!!
Telestial beings are NOT resurrected at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ (i.e. Judgment Day) and as spirits (though some of them may have physical bodies at this time because they were alive at the Second Coming) they are taken to another planet and they will stay on that planet for one-thousand years before they are brought back to this planet to be resurrected.
The one-thousand years is called the Millennium!!! This is not a good thing as the Millennium planet will likely be very hot and being there will be considered a serious punishment!!!
I do not know what planet they will be on, but it may be Venus or Mercury or it might be an exoplanet which is a planet with is orbiting another star outside of our solar system (by definition).
While I don't know of any specific versus that tie the Millennium to being hot, the Savior clearly indicated that at least one kind of hell is hot!!! See this Bible Video on the Latter-Day Saint website called "The Kingdom Of Heaven".
See Matthew 13:44-51 and especially versus 49-51:
"49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord."
For those telestial beings who are alive at the Second Coming I don't know what happens to them. I can only guess that they will die in an instant and then be buried before their spirit is taken to the millennium planet, but I do not know for sure.
So for one thousand years the righteous and honorable will be on this planet and the wicked (i.e. telestial) will be on a different, very uncomfortable and hot planet. An example would be Venus or Mercury in this solar system or an exoplanet which is a "Hot Jupiter" which is tidal locked.
I should make it very clear that the Judgment is based on a person'a behavior both on this planet as mortal beings and their behavior in the spirit world as spirits (i.e. after a person dies)!!!
In theory, a person could qualify for the Celestial Kingdom or Terrestrial Kingdom at the time of their death (before the Seconed Coming) but their behavior in the spirit world could drop them all the way down to the Terrestrial kingdom!!!
Two sins which cannot be committed while in the spirit world are:
Using the Ten Commandments as a guide, this means that the worst sin that CAN BE COMMITTED in the spirit world is adultery.
After The Thousand Years Of The Millennium
After the end of the Millennium those on the Millennium planet are brought back to this planet to be resurrected. After they are resurrected they will be taken to yet another planet (which I have not mentioned yet) forever. This planet will be far more comfortable than the Millennium planet!!!
The problem for those on this more comfortable planet is that the exact same wicked people on the Millennium planet will also be on the planet after the Millennium. Same people - Hitler, Stalin, rapists, etc. etc.!!!
Let us consider a man and a woman. Let us say that the man qualifies for the Celestial Kingdom at the time of the Second Coming of Christ. Let us suppose that his wife commits so much adultery in the spirit world that she ends up in the Telestial Kingdom.
Here is my point: after the Second Coming of Christ the wife and the husband will never again be on the same planet!!!!! Well, when the wife briefly comes to this planet to be resurrected after burning in hell for 1,000 years, they will be on the same planet - this planet. Let's say it takes her one hour to be resurrected. It is almost unthinkable that the husband would see her during that one hour as it would simply rub salt into her eternal wound of never being on this planet again with many of her family and friends!!!!
We should be glad that God is the judge. For example, let us say that a woman commits adultery many times while in the spirit world because she was living in an environment where what she did was perfectly acceptable (i.e. non-Latter-Day Saint standards). Does it make sense that she will be on the same planet as murderers for 1,000 years because of the situation she was in in the spirit world. Well, God will be the Judge so that is a good thing. For example, there could be multiple sections during the Millennium and which section you suffer in will be determined by God. But we don't know.
Special Cases: Sons Of Perdition and the "Like Unto the Son Of Perdition" (3 Nephi 29:4-7)
The only thing we know about the Sons of Perdition is that their punishment is forever, meaning never-ending. This is not a good thing. Judas Iscariot was the first that I know of.
It is certain that there were as many as two-hundred or more Sons of Perdition created because they were responsible for the murders of Joseph Smith (president of the LDS church) and his brother Hyrum Smith (assistant president of the LDS church). Don't mess with God's prophets!!!
It is quite likely that this day created more Sons of Perdition than any other day in the history of this planet!!!
We know nothing about the Like Unto The Son of Perdition punishment except that it is almost certainly the most powerful punishment for non-members of the LDS church!!!
