[ANON POST] Where In The Universe Am I?

If a modern-day scientist were to be transported to a planet orbiting a distant star, would they be able to tell where in the universe they are by observing the skies? What I mean is, could they pinpoint their location to a certain star system if they had access to the same tech and info as on Earth. The assumption being that it's a star system that we on Earth already know about.

I've tried to google extraterrestrial skies and variations thereof, and I've find descriptions of what they might look like, but not an answer to my question. Or at least an answer that I could understand LOL
