Astronism in Nauru refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Nauru. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Nauru, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Nauru oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Nauru is split into fourteen administrative districts and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Yaren.
This national branch of 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 Nauru including:
- Astro-Nauruan philosophy
- Astro-Nauruan religion
- Astro-Nauruan spirituality
- Nauruan astroncy
- Nauruan Astronism
- Nauruan astronomical religion
