A light bosonic dark matter with mass smaller than eV is ubiquitous in many BSM models. Such dark matter candidates behave like a collection of classical waves rather than particles due to a huge occupation number, and hence the name 'wave dark matter'. Searching for wave dark matter, like any other dark matter searches, requires an accurate astrophysical modeling of local dark matter around the solar system. In this talk, we will discuss the deformation of wave dark matter in the solar system and investigate how the existence of the Sun potentially affects signals in detectors.
