The conformally invariant theory of Hoyle and Narlikar is applied to two astrophysical scenarios. First it is shown how the existence of zero mass surfaces in the four-dimensional manifold in this theory can lead to black holes and white holes. Next it is shown that the so-called anomalous redshifts of QSOs and galaxies can be understood in terms of local shifts in the zero mass surfaces of this theory. Some observable consequences are discussed.
