Yes, Bodes law, none of the planets conform exactly to this law but they do
come close. Pluto would be another exception. It's really not known if there
is any law that determines where the planets orbit or if it is just a
coincidence but it is known that no other known planetary system conforms to
this law. And at this time we know of dozens if not hundreds of other
planetary systems.
