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.

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.

 Velikodskij Yuriy Ivanovich 

General data:

Born: 08.03.1974

Place of birth: Kharkiv city, Kharkiv region, Ukrainian SSR

Studied in: A. M. Gorky Kharkiv State University (since 1999 V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University) (1996);

Key interests: exploration of the Moon. PhD Thesis: Influence of albedo and relief on the law of distribution of brightness on the disk of the moon (2002 Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine);


He was born on March 8, 1974 in the Kharkiv city of Kharkiv region of Ukrainian SSR.

In 1996 he graduated from A. M. Gorky Kharkiv State University.

Since November 1996, the Institute of Astronomy of V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, now a senior researcher.

In 2002 he defended his dissertation "Influence of albedo and relief on the law of brightness distribution on the disk of the Moon" at the Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, majoring in Heliophysics and Physics of the Solar System. Akimov L. A. was his supervisor.

Developed together with R. V. Bondarenko, V. G. Kaidash, M. A. Kreslavsky, V. V. Korokhin, N. V. Opanasenko, D. G. Stankevich, L. V. Starukhina and Yu. G. Shkuratov in the observatory of Kharkiv University methods of remote diagnostics, which allowed to build maps of the distribution on the lunar surface of chromophores (iron and titanium) and other rock-forming elements (Mg, Ca, O), as well as helium concentration, lunar regolith thickness distribution maps and its roughness parameters.

He participated in the expedition of the Research Institute of Astronomy of V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University to observe the total solar eclipse on March 29, 2006 at the Mountain Astronomical Station of the Main Astronomical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences, located near the city of Kislovodsk in the mountains of the Karachay-Cherkessia Autonomous Republic at an altitude of 2130 meters The recording of spectra of the chromosphere with the D3 HeI line was first performed using a CCD camera.

Since September 2014, he has been working as a professor in the Department of Aerospace Geodesy at the National Aviation University.
