I am just back home from one of the main astronomic events of the year - the Ukrainian astronomic forum 2009, which took place in Kharkiv on May 21-24. More than 50 amateurs from different cities met together at Kharkov planetarium and spent wonderful 3 days there.

Next are only few of total 396 photos...  Wink

Thanks Martin and Andy, now I will try to upload more from our 'astronomic sightseeing'  Cool

UTR-2 (Ukrainian T-shaped radiotelescope) is one of the greatest ukrainian telescopes, and the biggest radiotelescope in the world (along with LOFAR) in decameter wavelength. No another telescope can receive signal at 10~30 MHz with similar quality.
It was created in 1970's. The telescope has 2x1 km size and 150.000 m2 of effective area. See more at Wikimapia
