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.

US VAO Data Discovery Portal 
Find datasets from thousands of astronomical collections known to the VO and over wide areas of the sky. This includes important collections from archives around the world. Feedback on your experience with the tool is appreciated -- please send your comments, suggestions, and questions to the VAO Help Desk.
US VAO Cross-Comparison Tool 
Perform fast positional cross-matches between an input table of up to 1 million sources and common astronomical source catalogs, such as 2MASS, SDSS DR7 and USNO-B. 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.

 Ernst M. 

General data:

04.03.1869 - 04.06.1930

Place of birth: Warsaw City, the Polish Kingdom in the possession of the Russian Empire

Studied in: Berlin University, German Empire (since 1990 Berlin University, Federal Republic of Germany) (1896);

Key interests: celestial mechanics, minor bodies of the Solar System, observational astronomy, variable stars, meteorology


He was born March 4, 1869 in the Warsaw City, the Polish kingdom in the possession of the Russian Empire.

In 1896, he graduated from the University of Berlin in the German Empire, receiving a Ph.D.

Since 1896 he worked as an assistant at the Astronomical Observatory of the Polytechnic School in the Lemberg city (since 1918 Lviv city).

In 1900, the Minister approved an act of habilitation of Dr. Marcin Ernst as a private associate professor in astronomy at the Franz I. University of Lviv.

During 1900-1930 he was the director of the Observatory (since 1907 in the new building), he conducted regular astronomical observations, laying the foundations of the astronomical library, reading lectures for students of the mathematical-natural faculty from different sections of astronomy, conducting seminars by the teachers of the department Astronomy at the University of Lviv (then time Lemberg city). In addition to observations for time, they conduct regular observations of planets and comets, eclipses, variable stars, meteorites, new sights, the passage of Mercury through the Sun's disk, and others.

In 1907 he was appointed extraordinary, and in 1912 he became an ordinary professor of astronomy at Lviv University.

The astronomer initiated regular astronomical observations to determine time and coordinates, observations of planets, comets, variable stars, meteors, and solar eclipses.

He twice left for observation of full solar eclipses: in 1905 in Spain and in 1914 in the Crimea.

During the stay of prof. M. Ernst, the director of the company purchased the Merz-Zendtner refractor (D = 134 mm, F = 180 cm), a universal instrument, a swing clock which were created by the Salmoiragi company, the average solar dimming dithisgeym, and a number of small laboratory devices.

June 4, 1930 scientist died in Lvov City of Ukrainian SSR.
