Linux: Stellarium

I'm no astronomer, but I'd like to be able to look up at the stars and recognize something. I'd like to able to look down at my son and say, "you see that?, that's the Orion constelation".
So I've wanted some simple astronomy software where you can put where you are and it'll show you what the sky is like, right now - or later on that night.
In the past I used CyberSky, which was simple and shareware, but Stellarium is 100x better. Stellarium even has twinkling of the stars. Take a look at this screenshot which is showing a daytime scene.

You can put in your own scenery as well. Effects fade in and fade out, the menu at the bottom is well designed. Everything about it is good.
