    Attached is a site that I found which allows you to input your local information to find planet positions. You can input a vast array of information and it will generate a map of the planets positions.

    Just found it interesting if anyone cares to use it.

    That's a handy little applet, nice find!

    If you want something a bit more immersive, try Stellarium: Stellarium

    Free, as detailed as you make it, good user-interface and FREE! :)
