Chinese: 康明恩, meaning "man of light and gratefulness"), or Kāng Míng Téng (Chinese: 康明腾) is the name by which the founder of Astronism (Chinese: 天文教; pinyin: Tiānwénjiào; Synotic: Astrojiào), Cometan, is known in both Mandarin Chinese (and its derivations) and Cantonese languages.
Subsequently, this is the name by which he is referred throughout different parts of the Sinosphere, particularly in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, as well as by diaspora populations of those nationalities around the world.
This is the name by which Cometan is known in the East Asian forms and denominations of Astronism.
