The Winter Sky
I find the winter sky to be much more beautiful than the summer one (although I really like the summer constellations a lot). Maybe it has something to do with the optical properties of cold air. Oh, I know, it really isn't winter yet, but when I was standing outside Sunday night looking at the clear sky, it was 11 degrees out. For a great site on stargazing, see Sky and Telescope web site. They have one of those nifty sky chart programs that lets you generate a map of the sky at any location at any time. It includes the planets.
