I have benefited greatly from this mnemonic because visitors at star parties would ask about their zodiacal signs and I could be knowledgeable but more importantly I know the whole sky around the ecliptic in order too.

Challenge for you all.
Develop a mnemonic for the distance to the planets in AU, (Astronomical Units ) and in order including Pluto.  I think we should also include the asteroid belt too.  

Here is a reference for distance to planets but not for the asteroids. 
FYI, Ceres is 2.8 AU
