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.

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: Andriyivka village, Izium district, Kharkiv province, Russian Empire

Studied in: Marine noble cadet corps, St. Petersburg, Russian Empire (1843-1847);

Key interests: mathematisc, astronomy


He was born on March 6, 1828 in the Andriyivka village of Izium district of Kharkiv province of the Russian Empire in the family of a retired lieutenant. He comes from the Ukrainian Cossack noble officers and nobility of the Zaporozhian army and the Russian Empire.

Since childhood he was fascinated by books on history and geography, telling about the famous sailors of the past: Cook, LaPerouse and, apparently not without their influence, he dreamed of a maritime profession.

In 1843 he joined the St. Petersburg Naval Cadet Corps, after which in 1847 he was sent to the Black Sea Fleet, where the tender "Quick" together with the future Admiral G. I. Butakov surveyed the Black Sea coast to compile a Black Sea lotion. In 1850 he was transferred to the Baltic Fleet, where he participated in hydrographic work under the direction of the Russian hydrographer M. F. Reineke.

At the end of 1852 the lieutenant was again transferred to the Black Sea Fleet, and in 1853, on the recommendation of Admiral V. A. Kornilov, he was appointed to Nikolaev city, where he became a teacher of mathematics and astronomy in the cadet classes.

In 1857 he was sent to England to replenish the stock of tools for the workshops of the port of Nikolaev city. Along the way, he got acquainted with the popular in those years the system of primary education Froebel, which on his return to Nikolaev city, was introduced by him in the founded by him together with the sisters A. I. and S. I. Ilya's school, known as the "Hummus School". He ruled it until 1863.

During a visit to Nikolaev city in 1858 by His Imperial Highness Admiral General, the Grand Duke, being extremely pleased with the Ilyins' school in Nikolaev city, invited Zarudny V. I. to become the educator of the Grand Duke's children, but he resolutely refused such a high honor.

In Nikolaev city he read some public lectures on cooperative business, managed to excite in a local society interest in this business and became the founder of the Nikolaev "society of saving and acquisition" - the first in the Russian empire cooperative society. A passionate lover of botany and gardening was one of the organizers of the Nikolaev branch of the Imperial Society of Horticulture.

In November 1860, the lieutenant captain was appointed assistant chief of the hydrographic unit in Nikokolaev city. In January 1863 he became chief of the hydrographic unit in Mykolayiv and part-time director of the lighthouses of the Black Sea Fleet. They developed a system of lighthouse lighting on the shores of the Black Sea, which was highly praised by sailors.

During 1871-1880, Captain of the 1st rank simultaneously served as director of lighthouses, chief of the hydrographic unit, and chief of the Black Sea Hydrographic Expedition. The result of his work on the Black and Azov Seas were wonderful tablets, atlases and maps. At the same time, they created an effective system of lighthouse lighting in these seas.

Tense work schedule and extremely responsible attitude V. I. Zarudny to his duties with fanatical perseverance led to a mental disorder and in 1886 he was placed in the psychiatric hospital of Wincendorf near Vienna. A few months later he almost completely regained his mental health, but due to age, was not able to fully recover for active work and in March 1888 he was dismissed with the rank of Vice Admiral.

On June 15, 1897, in Kharkiv city, the Vice Admiral died and was buried in the Ioanno-Usiknovensky Cemetery.
