Title: Searching the invisible Universe through the stars and beyond
In this talk I review some bounds on light dark matter, derived from astrophysical observables. I focus on axion and axion-like particles, as well as on dark photons. I present constraints on these particles from MS stars, Globular Clusters and compact objects, and some recent results about dark photons obtained by my collaborators and me. In addition, I discuss a future work on the Lyman-alpha forest, in order to elucidate the role of axions as dark matter candidates.
