I found this little program, a computer observatory for us, who don't own a telescope or have access to an oberservatory, Stellarium, which I downloaded and it looks really good!

Look at the screenshots! I have configured it to my place, so now I don't care if it's cloudy or rainy, I can always see the nightsky!!!

Look at the screenshot!

Stellarium is looking cool. Zooming in on the planets, which move through the night's sky. It's very difficult to keep Pluto in the lens. ;)
