250 років Астрономічній обсерваторії Львівського університету
This coin celebrates the Lviv University Astronomical Observatory, a research and development center. One of the oldest observatories in Eastern Europe, it was founded in 1771. At that time, the study of celestial bodies in Lviv was at the same level as that in Berlin, Vilnius or Vienna, as the observatory’s equipment was not inferior to that in similar contemporary European institutions. Scientists were trained in Lviv University, which launched an astronomy course to that end. The main activities of the modern institution are the study of the Sun, stars, the interstellar medium, galaxies and the Universe as a whole. Laser-range, photometric and positional observations of the artificial satellites of the Earth are also an important area of the observatory’s activity. A set of telescopes for such observations is in the register of scientific objects that are part of the national heritage of Ukraine.
