Astro-Comoran philosophy, or Comoran Astronism, and also known as Comoran Tanwir as part of the larger Tanwir’ism denomination, refers to the presence of Astronism in the Union of the Comoros under management and jurisdiction of The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Union of the Comoros, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. 

The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Union of the Comoros oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Comoros is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Moroni. 

History of Astronism in the Comoros

The status of the religious freedom for Astronists in the Comoros has been designated as terminal by the Astronist Institution. Severe repression of religious liberties has been reported from the Comoros towards numerous non-Islamic religious groups. 

Astronists have little to no rights in the country to profess their faith in any way and as a result, the number of Astronists in the country is considered to be very few. Comorans mainly speak Arabic which represents a further issues for Comorans to access Astronist content as only a limited amount of accurately translated materials on Astronism exists in Arabic as of November 2019.
