Main actors in astronomy research in the country  There are 7 Research Institutes in the structure of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NAS of Ukraine), 2 Research Institutes in the structure of the Ministry of Education and Science, Youth and Sport of Ukraine (MESYS of Ukraine); 15 astronomical observatories and Departments in the structure of the Universities of the MESYS of Ukraine; 1 Private Astronomical Observatory play a main role in the development and teaching Astronomy in Ukraine.
The XPM Catalog  Absolute proper motions of 280 million stars distributed all over the sky without gaps in the magnitude range 10m < V <20m on the basis of combined data from 2MASS and USNO-A2.0 catalogues.
MAO NASU Plate Archive   Digital archive of MAO NAS of Ukraine (GPA) comprises data of about 26 thousands of direct photographic plates, obtained with 14 instruments in 9 observational sites, and more than 2000 digital images of different resolution available via GPA search pages.
Mykolaiv AO Plate Archive   Digital archive of Mykolaiv Aastronomical Observatory (MykAO) includes astronomical data obtained during observations with photo plates and CCD frames. The digitization of the archive is near its completion. Digitized images are available via a web browser and Aladin.
AO LNU Plate Archive   Astronomical Observatory of Lviv National University (AO LNU) is the owner of valuable archive that stores approximately 8 000 of photographic plates from 1939, including nearly 6 000 direct images of the northern sky. The archive is partly digitized and images are available via the joint search pages of AO LNU and MAO NASU.
IRA UTR-2 catalogue of RS   The very-low frequency sky survey of discrete sources has been obtained in the Institute of Radio Astronomy of the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences (Kharkov, Ukraine) with the UTR-2 radio telescope at a number of the lowest frequencies used in contemporary radio astronomy within the range from 10 to 25 MHz.
Mykolaiv AO stellar catalogues   27 astrometric stellar catalogues of Mykolaiv Aastronomical Observatory (MykAO) in VOTable format are available for downloading
AO KNU Historic Plate Archive   AO KNU glass collection contains about 20 thousand photographic plates. Historical part of the archive was received during 1898-1946 and now is being digitized.

Feedback on your experience with the tool is appreciated -- please send your comments, suggestions, and questions to the VAO Help Desk.
VOPlot v1.8 Beta 
VOPlot v1.8Beta includes many enhancements and bug fixes. To name a few v1.8Beta supports multi-grid plots for 2D Scatter-Plot which allows the user to have multiple plots having grid size from 1x1 to 3x3 in a single window. Paginated view is added to see data in tabular format which allows user to navigate systematically. Provision to label Lat/Long lines is also added. Users can now plot a cumulative histogram for all histogram types. VOPlot 1.8Beta shows the metadata of a FITS file instantaneously while the actual loading happens in background. VOPlot v1.8Beta also provides better handling of "faulty data" while parsing an ASCII file.

Skovoroda Kharkiv National Pedagogical University) (1947-1951); Main astronomical observatory of the Academy of Sciences of Urainian SSR (since 1991, the Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine) (1956 -1959);

Key interests: physics of comets, minor bodies of the Solar System, astrometry, exploration of the Moon, popularization of astronomy. PhD Thesis: The asymmetry of the lunar profile, inclination of the lunar orbit and librational effects of the Moon. (1963 V.I. Ulyanov-Lenin Kazan Order of the Red Banner of Labor State University);


He was born on 17 November 1922 in Myronivka village of Sahnovschansky district of Kharkov region of Ukrainian SSR in a peasant family.

Since October 1945 to April 1947 he worked as an accountant in the administrative and economic department of the Bryansk Coal Trust.

During 1947-1951 he was a student at P.S. Scovoroda Kharkov State Pedagogical Institute, studying in job "teacher of physics and mathematics". In 1951-1956 he was a teacher in Starosaltivsk's high school.

November 15, 1956 he entered the graduate school of the Main Astronomical Observatory of Academy of Sciences of Ukrainian SSR in specialty "astrometry", after which in 1959 he worked at Main Astronomical Observatory of Academy of Sciences of Ukrainian SSR since mid-November 1959 as a junior researcher of Department of Photographic Astrometry until the end of September 1971.

In 1963 he defended at V.I. Ulyanov-Lenin Kazan Order of the Red Banner of Labor State University his candidate thesis on topic "The asymmetry of the lunar profile, inclination of the lunar orbit and librational effects of Moon".

In mid-September 1971 he moved to work at the Department of Mathematical Physics of Kyiv Polytechnic Institute as an assistant.

He participated in the popularization of astronomy, gave popular science lectures. He was fond of poetry and songs and is the author of a number of poems and songs.
