The Hayden Planetarium (American Museum of Natural History, New York) is offering a Digital Universe Atlas for download, for the three most popular platforms (Mac/Doze/Linux). This atlas allows you to wander around the Universe in scales from Solar System size down to having the entire universe presented in a small ball.
You can see planetary orbits, our stellar neighbourhood, or view the entire Milky Way Galaxy (or entire Universe!) from afar off, either as symbols or in some cases as neatly labelled points (e.g. “Aldebaran” marked as being a nearby star system).
So... get to know your neighbourhood!
