Gravitational lensing of invisible streaming matter towards the Sun or the Earth could be the explanation of puzzling solar/terrestrial phenomena. We have analyzed solar flares, EUV emission and also the global ionization content of the Earth atmosphere. Assuming that this invisible matter has some form of interaction with normal matter and that there exist preferred directions in its flow, then one would expect an enhanced activity at certain planetary longitudes, which is also observed. The broad velocity spectrum of the assumed constituents makes it difficult at this stage to identify the origin of the stream(s) or the nature of its constituents.
