Astronism in Patagonia refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion across the region of Patagonia. The operations of the Astronist Institution in region are under joint jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Argentina and the Astronist Superiate of Chile, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
These two superiates oversee the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout their respective jurisdiction.
This transnational 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.
