        Interesting and a great puzzle! Never heard of EQUILUX11AMeaning "equal light", this term is for the day when a specific location will see exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness[-------] before and I took a bunch of astronomy courses in college. According to Wikipedia, it's a neologism that was coined in the 1980s but has achieved "more widespread recognition in the 21st century." Odd that I didn't go to college this century 😆

          Fun fact: a Boston cream pie is technically not a pie, but actually a cake!
