NASA: Eyes On The Solar System [Currently Beta]
Link: Eyes on the Solar System
Note: This required a plugin to run: UnityWebPlayer [This is downloaded from the same webpage] Once UnityWebPlayer is installed Eyes on The Solar System runs from your browser.
"Eyes on the Solar System" is a 3-D environment full of real NASA mission data. Explore the cosmos from your computer. Hop on an asteroid. Fly with NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft. See the entire solar system moving in real time.
My screenshots don't do it justice. If you are interested in this topic best to have a look for yourself.

I installed Eyes on The Solar System a while ago and and so I have the Beta and I am not sure when it comes out of that stage. There are alternatives that are freeware and that have moved beyond the Beta stage like:

Screenshots from Celestia:
Celestial will also simulate distant views/objects. However it does not use NASA data in the same way that Eyes On The Solar System does. I am not sure about other alternatives.
Edit: Following this link
Link: Astronomy Software List - Freeware, Shareware, Commercial
will take you to a web page listing Astronomy software for Windows, MAC and Unix. It will also list interactive web pages. There are a lot of links listed here. You might find something you like?
I will also post this link in the Edugeek forum: Links
