Cool Piece of Astronomical Software of the Day: Stellarium
Ever wonder what is that third star from the right?  Could that planet be Jupiter or possibly Venus?  Or, are you just planning a stargazing trip to someplace distant sometime in the far off  future and are wondering what you can expect to see?
Then, Stellarium is just for you.

A free download, Stellarium lets you browse the universe, see the stars from your current coordinates, and even sit back and check out the sights from the Mars Rover. In a way, it's better than the planetarium, since you can look for specific stars and planets, and match up the constellations to the signs of the zodiac.
