finding a website


Just would like to say I've found everyone here very friendly and helpful.
I've been trying to find a website that shows the location of the stars and planets at diffenet locations around the globe and at given times. I found one a couple months ago but I didn't bookmark it so I can't find it now. Or maybe there already is a link to one on this website but I haven't seen it. If anyone knows a good source please let me know. Thanks.

I did manage to find a pretty good skymap thing that you can enter a location and time of your choice to find our where major stars and planets are located. Unfortunatley it isn't totally free, bummer. you get a 15day free trial then you have to pay I think $17 per month. www.relativedata.com then click on a link to MyStarsLive and you can choose a number of download options. If anyone knows of another one similar but free, that would be awesome!!
