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; 1Private Astronomical Observatory play amain 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.

The Role of Data Science in Astronomy and Interstellar Exploration 
Space has always been a fascinating frontier for humans. From the first satellite, Sputnik 1, in 1957, to the amazing Mars rovers, our adventures in space show our love for discovery, creativity, and courage. Exploring space is a big dream, always pushing us to learn more and go further. Nowadays, data science is making a meaningful contribution to space technology. It's changing how we think about space. Being able to gather, understand, and use lots of data has helped us get to know the universe better and has changed how we explore and move through space...
GRID-based Virtual Observatory VIRGO.UA 
VO VIRGO.UA for cosmology and astrophysics is a segment of VO Infrastructure- a virtual organization, which deals with ensuring the provision of standards for Grid Services for virtual organizations, to ensure reliability functioning of the Ukrainian power grid, Grid training for users and administrators of the Grid sites, as well as the creation of technical conditions UNG for entry into the international grid community...
WDC-Ukraine is a part of World Data Center System of the International Council of Science (ICSU). Among the basic tasks of WDC-Ukraine there is collection, handling and storage of science data and giving access to it for usage both in science research and study process. That include contemporary tutoring technologies and resources of e-libraries and archives; remote access to own information resources for the wide circle of scientists from the universities and science institutions of Ukraine...
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.

Place of birth: Moscow City

Studied in: Imperial Moscow University (since 1940 M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University) (1908);

Key interests: solar physics, astronomy, meteorology


He was born on October 14, 1884 (in the Julian calendar, according to Gregorian calendar 27) in Moscow City (according to other sources - in the Knyazhevo village in Moscow province of the Russian Empire, now - Yegoryevsky district, Moscow region of the Russian Federation) in the middle-aged family of an artist of the genus of a hereditary priest. He grew up in Vasnetsov's Moscow House and the famous Abramtsevo village.

After completing the 4th Moscow Gymnasium with a gold medal, I entered the first year of the Imperial Moscow University. In 1908 he graduated from the mathematical faculty of the Imperial Moscow University, specializing in astronomy.

Having left the military service, Mikhail Viktorovich Vasnetsov taught in private gymnasiums. Worked as a teacher and with heavy, "street teens" 12-16 years in an institution called "Child Labor and Recreation", where he equipped his own observatory.

He was a member of the Moscow Society of Amateur Astronomers, which was founded in 1910.

Conducted observations of Halley's comet in the Crimea in April 1910.

In 1912 he and his wife moved to Odessa city, receiving a job at the Astronomical Observatory.

Since the beginning of the First World War in 1914 he was mobilized. At first he was in the reserve regiment in Odessa, and then he managed to get a place for a meteorological teacher at the Aviation School in Kyiv City. In August 1917, the School of Observatory pilots was transferred to Crimea, to Evpatoria, and in 1918 the school was closed. Considering himself demobilized, the astronomer and his wife returned to Odessa. In 1920, he was again called into the army (White Guards), and subsequently, among the remnants of the regiment was evacuated abroad, stopped in Gallipoli, and in the end of 1921 he moved to Bulgaria.

In October 1922, he found in Sofia city the work of a teacher of mathematics in the Technical Courses, which are held by Americans. But for this he had to leave the staff of the Engineering School.

While still a member of the Observatory of the Imperial Novorosian University of Odessa City (until 1918), he was studying solar activity, observing solar eclipses in Yalta in 1910, as well as August 8, 1914, which was observed from Scandinavia to the North Caucasus.

He was a member of the Russian Academic Group in Bulgaria; Secretary of the Gallipool Academic Group. Since 1924 (according to some data since 1920) he lived in Prague (Czechoslovakia), where he conducted pedagogical and scientific activities. He was member of Russian Academic Group.

He taught at the University of Prague astronomy.

Since 1925 he was the secretary of the engineering and construction department of the Academic Board, a member of its physics and mathematics department.

At the same time, he became more and more deeply involved in spiritual life, and in 1932 he was ordained a deacon, and in 1933 he received a priest from the Orthodox Church of Prague or, more precisely, the Church of St. Nicholas, subsequently organized a home church in the apartment where he lived since 1924 with his wife and son than his wife has obtained permission to go abroad.
