Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A122559 Position of first letter of n-th planet (in English) in alphabet. 0
13, 22, 5, 13, 10, 19, 21, 14 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



M, V, E, M, J, S, U and N are the first letters of each of the 8 Planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune) in the Solar System in order from the sun. Due to a resolution by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) on August 24 2006, Pluto is no longer considered a planet but a 'dwarf planet'(term which resolution makes clearly distinct from that of "planet"). The definition currently applies only to the Sun's solar system and to the English language.
