Dark matter dominates the matter content of the universe, but apart from its gravitational influence its identity remains elusive. By definition dark matter doesn’t interact significantly with normal matter. However, many dark matter candidates do have predicted observable signatures. Recently there have been a number of observations that could have originated from dark matter. I will discuss some of these signals and their possible interpretations.
