Perhaps you’d like a simple way to explore the planets and Solar system?

Solar System Scope

Check out planets, review star names and distances, and explore view Settings.

Try perspectives: Heliocentric, Geocentric, or Panoramic. In Helio, you can click and drag to change the angle, both in wider and planetary view.

They have a download version, if you have Adobe Air installed.

If you’d prefer a map of the stars from where and when you are on earth, try the

Neave Planetarium

Unlock the time to explore the past or future.

Google Sky is a more detailed view of the Sky in general.  Or if you like your searching to be a little more “flexible”, you might like Google Space.
