Astronism in Palau refers to the presence of the Astronist religion in the Republic of Palau, as part of the worldwide Astronist Institution.

Astro-Palauan philosophy, or Palauan Astronism refers to the presence of Astronism in the Republic of Palau under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Palau, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Palau oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Palau is split into sixteen states and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the largest city of Koror. 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. History of Astronism in Palau. As of November 2019, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the country of Palau. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2019 report called the Demographics of Astronism, Palau had a population of just 60 Astronists. Despite their unrecognised status, Astronists enjoy relative religious liberties in the country and can practice and profess their faith openly and publicly without fear of repression or incident. Therefore, the Astronist Institution has not expressed concerns regarding the religious freedoms for Astronists in this country.
