Stellarium

This is an amazing program that's actually a 3D planetarium. It simulates the sky - just set your location, and see what planets and stars will be visible tonight. Or tommorow. Or jump several years forward. You can even change your point of view to other planets and moons. It also allows you to easily find constellations, nebulae, or specific stars with a search function. There's more but you can discover that yourself.

The default database is pretty impressive, but I read that you can expand it to include even more stars, if you like.

It's easy to use, absolutely awesome, and I feel very lucky to have stumbled upon it.
