i have never been much of a star gazer.  i think because i have moved so many times to such far flung places, it was more than my leaky mind could track.  however....my interest has been rekindled.  i found this site and wonder if some of you have similar sites that you want to share?

I use to have something on my computer where you could type in the date and time and it showed you what the sky looked like, where stuff was. Can't recall the name of that now. It was really neat. Been thinking about getting that going again.

There's a few programs out there that show sky maps, a couple of the best are free.  Cartes du Ciel and Stellarium can be found on this SourceForge.net page.  I've tried them both, Cartes du Ciel is the user-friendliest.
