    Hi, for all of you we´ve made new user-friendly interactive 3D model of solar system and night sky with real-time planet´s positions.

    http://www.solarsystemscope.com/ (requires flash)

    Application in a simple way helps students and laymen to understand the movements of the planets and to recognize constellations.

    For astronomers it also brings other interesting views and various settings.

    It's free and without needing to install, so definitely try it :-)

    First impression of the model was it looked cool until I looked closer and realized I couldn't find the dwarf planets, including Ceres, which I think might prove to be one of the most interesting places in our solar system.

    I'd add the largest Jovian moons as well...they are almost a must-have for amateur astronomers with budding interest.
