Orthographic projection of the Faroe Islands.

Astronism in the Faroe Islands refers to the presence of the Astronist religion in the Constituent Country of the Faroe Islands, as part of the worldwide Astronist Institution.

Astro-Faroese philosophy, or Faroese Astronism, refers to the presence of Astronism in the Faroe Islands. This territory is under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Faroe Islands, which is under authority of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Kingdom of Denmark, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Faroe Islands oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. The Faroe Islands are split into thirty municipalities and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Tórshavn. 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 the Faroe Islands. As of November 2019, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the Faroe Islands. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2019 report called the Demographics of Astronism, the Faroe Islands had a population of just 80 Astronists.
