Astronism in Kenya refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Kenya. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Kenya, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Kenya oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Kenya is split into forty-seven counties and is set to hold two Grand Observatories in total in both the capital city of Nairobi, and in the city of Mombasa.
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 Kenya including:
- Astro-Kenyan philosophy
- Astro-Kenyan religion
- Kenyan astroncy
- Kenyan Astronism
- Kenyan astronomical religion
- Kenyan Cosmism
- Kenyan space religion
History of Astronism in Kenya
Astronism is not currently recognised as a religion in Kenya as of December 2020 and in its latest Demographics of Astronism report, the Astronist Institution claimed 17,002 people in Kenya identified as Astronists.
Kenya has become particularly important in relation to Astronism's presence in the East Africa subregion because Kenya is one of the only countries in which many citizens speak English. As of 2020, the majority of Astronist materials and content is produced in English so Kenyans are able to access and comprehend the full array of content relating to Astronism.
