You could try Stellarium

http://www.stellarium.org/

It shows the night sky in real time from the location you pick, showing you what you can be expected to see if conditions were clear - it includes all stars, constellations and planets. i find it to be very good.

Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee for now!
Joe

The sticky post at the top of this forum might be worth a read too. You'll find a pointer to a site that lists lots of software that'll run on your operating system. While I know that's not a recommendation, there are some free downloads there so you can try more than one and see what you like best.
