Astronism in Jordan refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Jordan, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Jordan oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Jordan is split into twelve governorates and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Amman.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Jordan including:
- Astro-Jordanian philosophy
- Astro-Jordanian religion
- Astro-Jordanian spirituality
- Jordanian astroncy
- Jordanian Astronism
- Jordanian astronomical religion
- Jordanian Cosmism
- Jordanian space religion
- Jordanian Tanwir
History of Astronism in Jordan
Astronism is not currently recognised as a religion in Jordan and as of December 2020, there are a reported 1,911 Astronists living in Jordan.
