Astronism in Greenland refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Danish territory of Greenland. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Greenland which is under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Denmark, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Greenland oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Greenland is split into four municipalities and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Nuuk, which will also be the only observatory in Greenland.
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 Greenland including:
- Astro-Greenlandic philosophy
- Astro-Greenlandic religion
- Astro-Greenlandic spirituality
- Greenlandic astroncy
- Greenlandic Astronism
- Greenlandic astronomical religion
- Greenlandic Cosmism
- Greenlandic space religion
