    Hmm. I must be doing some very weird thing wrong, because I'm pretty sure I have the second word but not the first... – Gareth McCaughan Sep 14 at 21:14
  • Ah, wait, I misread at least one thing. – Gareth McCaughan Sep 14 at 21:15
  • (And miscounted one. Duh.) – Gareth McCaughan Sep 14 at 21:16

    First, I would say that @GarethMcCaughan's answer is correct, but what I'm curious about is ... Why did you pick this particular subject for this puzzle? – 3D1T0R Sep 14 at 23:11
  • @3D1T0R I typically write puzzles for some events, not standalone puzzles, and this one I wrote for a space-themed event. – Mariia Mykhailova Sep 14 at 23:39

You are

CAPUT TRIANGULI.

To get this,

first identify the individual solar-system bodies as done by El-Guest. (Reader, if you like my answer, go and upvote El-Guest's.) Then number them (sun=0, Mercury=1, ..., Pluto=9) to get 1-digit and 2-digit numbers. Then convert to letters using A1Z26.

Similar to @QuantumTwinkie, are you

Solar System?

From the top

Earthworm, Freddie Mercury, Mercury, Saturn
Venus De Milo, Mercury, Venus Fly Trap, Sunscreen
Venus Williams, Sunflower, Mercury probe, Neptune
Pluto the Dog, Mercury quarter, Sailor Mercury, Mars bar
Uranium, Venus razors, Mercury
Mercury automobiles, Birth of Venus, Pluto
