I've spend a few minutes playing with Stellarium. It's open source planetarium software. It allows you to set up your current position and get a labelled view of what you will see in the night sky from that location. What is particularly nice about the package is that it includes detailed pictures of many of the objects, so not only can you identify them, you can also see what they should look like.
