[PLUG-TALK] Where's Venus?

Is there a simple web or desktop app that uses clock
time and GPS location to identify the brighter objects
in the night (or daytime) sky?  Extra bonus points for
a skyview app that includes the realtime positions of
satellites computed from their orbital elements, and
aircraft from realtime flight tracking information.

If ordinary people can easily identify what they see in
the sky, they may be slightly less prone to hypothesize
alien spaceships.  And if enough people from widely
different locations photograph a moving object that is
NOT asily explained, perhaps they will discover something
new and interesting.
