Astronism in Mayotte refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Department of Mayotte. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Mayotte which is itself under the direct jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of France, also called the French Superiate, national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Mayotte oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Mayotte is split into seventeen communes and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Mamoudzou, which will be one of two Astronist observatories in Mayotte.
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 Mayotte including:
- Astro-Mahoran philosophy
- Astro-Mahoran religion
- Astro-Mahoran spirituality
- Mahoran astroncy
- Mahoran Astronism
- Mahoran astronomical religion
