Astronism in Jordan refers to the presence of the Astronist religion in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, as part of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
Astro-Jordanian philosophy, or Jordanian Astronism, or also known as Jordanian Tanwir as part of the larger Tanwir’ism denomination, refers to the presence of Astronism in Jordan. This independent territory is under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Hashemite Kingdom 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 Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism 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.
