I am totally now a fan of Sky & Telescope's website. The website has a video series called Skyweek (which also happens to be on PBS). The series gives a little five minute synopsis of the major things you will see in the sky for that week. It is really easy to follow and is not as confusing as star charts can be. Additionally, the show gives a little explanation of why something is happening the way it is in the night sky.
These videos will definitely help me. Also, they are presented in such a manner that I think my daughter will also gain a lot from them. I thought that I would share for any of those budding astronomers out there!
