Is there a good space exploration computer program with animation?

I'm looking for a good program that you can explore the Milky Way with, preferably something with 'fly-by' animation. I don't care if I have to pay for it or not, but I want a really good quality one with different kinds of stars, black holes, plants, gas clouds, etc.

PLEASE HELP!

I would really like something I can download online and try to before I buy it to make sure it's what I'm looking for.

PLEASE HELP!

    There is an awesome product called Explore Space Live that you can order from the New Mexico Museum of Space History gift shop - www.spacehall.com. It gives you, via your computer, live telescope time on some of the largest scopes in the world. You can view space in a number of areas and see our galaxy first hand. An awesome program!
