The Planets

According to NASA, there are eight planets in our solar system.[1] Beyond the eight planets are additional dwarf planets, including Pluto.

How to Memorize the Planets

Here are the names of the planets:

  1. Mercury
  2. Venus
  3. Earth
  4. Mars
  5. Jupiter
  6. Saturn
  7. Uranus
  8. Neptune

To remember the planets, you can create an acrostic from the first letter of each planet, like "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos".

There may be hundreds of dwarf planets, so those are usually left out of the main mnemonic, but if you want to remember Pluto as well, you can use "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas."
