By ultra-light we mean a mass so small that the corresponding de Broglie wavelength is macroscopic, a sizable fraction of a galaxy.  We will go over the particle physics motivation for this idea, in particular a derivation of the natural cosmic abundance. We will also discuss the astrophysical implications, especially ones that might help to distinguish this dark matter candidate from more conventional cold dark matter, such as WIMPs (weakly interacting massive particles).
