Non-minimal hidden sectors are an important generic possibility and arise in highly motivated theories like Neutral Naturalness. A fraction of dark matter could therefore have hidden interactions analogous to Standard Matter (SM) electromagnetism and nuclear physics. This leads to the formation of \emph{Mirror Stars}: dark-sector analogues of regular stars that shine in dark photons. We examine the visible signatures of Mirror Stars in observations for the first time. If the dark and visible… Expand
