Astronism in Kyrgyzstan refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Kyrgyz Republic. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Kyrgyzstan, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Kyrgyzstan oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Kyrgyzstan is split into nine regions and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Bishkek, which is one of only two observatories in the republic.
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 Kyrgyzstan including:
- Astro-Kyrgyz philosophy
- Astro-Kyrgyz religion
- Astro-Kyrgyz spirituality
- Kyrgyz astroncy
- Kyrgyz Astronism
- Kyrgyz astronomical religion
- Kyrgyz Cosmism
- Kyrgyz space religion
