Check Stellarium also, it's a great open source planetarium that seems to be portable. http://www.stellarium.org/

WARNING : note the .za country code in this URL. I visited the site on 7th June 2007 and noted other programs on the same page to download from the author...one of them was pre-loaded with a TROJAN and was immediately squashed by my avast! anti-virus (free). I did not go back for more. All his programs date back to 2002 and have not been updated. Avoid.
