This tool provides access to key solar system data and flexible production of highly accurate ephemerides for solar system objects.

Basically, it gives you information about planets, asteroids, ...etc. Makes you feel like you're up there in space.

Edit: the following link would have been less confusing, https://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/?horizons
