Dark Photons from the Center of the Earth

I present a search for dark matter annihilation into dark photons at the center of the Earth, focusing on the present and future reach of IceCube and space-based telescopes. I highlight the effect of low-velocity enhancements to dark matter capture and kinematic features that offer an opportunity for a smoking-gun signal. I also present prospects for an analogous search for dark photons from the center of the sun which may be detected by AMS-02, extending earlier work by modeling the effect of the solar wind.
