My Very Exciting Magic Carpet Just Sailed Under Nine Palace Elephants


No, "My Very Exciting Magic Carpet Just Sailed Under Nine Palace Elephants" isn't some new children's book.

wouldn't it be cool if it was?

"My Very Exciting Magic Carpet Just Sailed Under Nine Palace Elephants" is a mnemonic for the 11 planets of our Solar System. Yep, we've got 11, according the latest count. CNN has the details of the National Geographic contest to make it easier to remember all 11 planets (at least for now) of our Sol System. And oh, I almost forgot: the roll call is Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Ceres, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Eris.
