Orthographic projection of the Commonwealth of Australia
Astro-Australian philosophy, also known as Australian Astronism, refers to the presence of Astronism in the Commonwealth of Australia under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Commonwealth of Australia, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Commonwealth of Australia oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Australia is split into eleven districts, including both state and external territories, and is set to hold two Grand Observatories in the capital city of Canberra and the largest city of Sydney.
History of Astronism in Australia
Astronism is not presently recognised by the government of Australia as an official religion and neither are only Astronist organisations recognised as charities. However, due to the majority of Digital Astronism existing in English, the accessibility of Australians to Astronist content is much higher than in non-English speaking countries.
For this reason, the Astronist Institution has estimated that Astronists count for 45,000 people in Australia although official statistics are not presently available due to the unrecognised status of Astronism in the country. Freedom of religion in Australia is good, hence Astronists are free to practice their faith without fear of violence or societal ostracism.
