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.

Place of birth: Kyiv City, Ukrainian SSR

Studied in: T. G. Shevchenko Kyiv Order of Lenin State University (since 1999 Taras Shevchenko Kyiv National University) (1959);

Key interests: history of astronomy, solar physics, magnetic fields of the Sun and stars. PhD Thesis: Investigation of the stability of the structure of the corpuscular field of the Sun by geomagnetic and comet data (1971 Tajik State University);


She was born April 20, 1937, in Kyiv City of Ukranian SSR, in the academic family, the head of the department of the Institute of general and inorganic chemistry Dmytro Pavlovich Zosimovich and engineer-chemist Galina Nikolaevna Sharova-Zosimovich was born.

In 1971 she defended her Ph.D. thesis: "Investigation of the stability of the structure of the corpuscular field of the sun by geomagnetic and comet data" at Tajik State University.

While working at the university, she conducted research in the field of solar-terrestrial communications, and first created and published the "Catalog of geomagnetic average daily indexes of geomagnetic activity for 1841-1910 biennium", which is used by researchers in our country and abroad, which allowed us to study macro- and micro-aspects of helium and geomagnetic connections for a much longer period than before.

Since 1975 (according to other data since 1986), she was a senior researcher at the Center for Research in Scientific and Technical Capacity and Science History of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

From 1976-1986 she worked in the history of natural history at the Institute of History of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

Known as the historian of science "Astronomy". Investigated the scientific work of Professor S.K. Vsehsvyatsky.

In 1986, she became a member of the International Astronomical Union (MAU) and a member of its commission "History of Astronomy".

During 1980-1990 she worked as a secretary of the Scientific-Coordination Commission on the History of Astronomy at the Astronomical Council of the USSR Academy of Sciences

In 1984 she became a member of the International Union of Philosophy and History of Science.

In 1990-1998 she was elected Deputy of the Starokievsky District Council of People's Deputies of Kyiv XXI and XXII convocations.

In 2003 she retired.

Died January 20, 2011

She is the author and co-author of 7 monographs and over 80 scientific works on astronomy and science history. Total over 100 scientific works written by her. Astronomical history studies concerned both the history of the national and world astronomy, the formation and development of scientific schools in the field of astronomy in Ukraine, the teaching of astronomy, the restoration of scientific priorities, traditions and continuity of Ukrainian

astronomical science in the context of the development of world astronomical science.
