Challenge: The largest objects in the solar system in decreasing size

I challenge you to remember the list of objects in the solar system in order by their diameters.

Here, a notation like “Io (Jupiter)” means that Io orbits Jupiter, or that Io is a moon of Jupiter. Objects which aren’t planets are listed by what they are.

Sun (star) (diameter of over 1 million km)
—200 thousand km—
Jupiter
Saturn
—100 thousand km—
Uranus
—50 thousand km—
Neptune
Earth
Venus
—10 thousand km—
Mars
Ganymede (Jupiter)
Titan (Saturn)
—5 thousand km—
Mercury
Callisto (Jupiter)
Io (Jupiter)
Moon (Earth)
Europa (Jupiter)
Triton (Neptune)
Pluto (dwarf planet orbiting beyond Neptune)
Eris (dwarf planet orbiting beyond Neptune)
Haumea (dwarf planet orbiting beyond Neptune)
Titania (Uranus)
Rhea (Saturn)
Oberon (Uranus)
Iapetus (Saturn)
Makemake (dwarf planet orbiting beyond Neptune)
—past this point, the order is uncertain, as some objects have large uncertainties in their diameters—
Gonggong (object orbiting beyond Neptune, provisional name for 2007 OR10)
Charon (Pluto)
Umbriel (Uranus)
Ariel (Uranus)
Dione (Saturn)
Quaoar (object orbiting beyond Neptune)
Tethys (Saturn)
—1 thousand km—
Sedna (object orbiting beyond Neptune)
Ceres (asteroid and dwarf planet)
2002 MS4 (object orbiting beyond Neptune)
Orcus (object orbiting beyond Neptune)
Salacia (object orbiting beyond Neptune)
—800 km—
—past this point, there may be undiscovered objects—
