This program called Solar System Scope is online and anyone can download it onto their desktop, for a fee, but onto a website is free of charge. If you would like to see the website for yourself, please visit Solar System Scope.

Actually see how the stars and constellations line up with the planets.

Great for the astronomer in all of us. Also for school lessons and amateur telescope enthusiasts, this program puts outer space into perspective. 

Note: there is music so if you do not care for the instrumental, then be sure to mute the music.
