Astronism in the Californian Channel Islands refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion across eight islands off the coast of California. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the supersidiary of the Astronist Superiate of California which is itself under the jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of the United States, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of the United States oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction.
This subnational 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.
