Planet Names

An easy way to remember the planet's names is to remember a funny thing to say:
My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos

The first letter from each of those words matches up with the first letter of a planet!
My - M - Mercury
Very - V - Venus
Educated - E - Earth
Mother - M - Mars
Just - J - Jupiter
Served - S - Saturn
Us - U - Uranus
Nachos - N - Neptune

This is also the right order for the planets too, from the closest to the sun (Mercury) to the farthest away (Neptune)
(From: Wikipedia - Solar System)

Remember that Pluto is still out there, but it's not a planet anymore!
