Hey Everyone! It’s Time for ‘Word of the Day!”

Today’s word is aphotic (ay-FO-tik) adjective

Lightless, especially without sunlight.

[From Greek a- (not) + phot- (light). Ultimately from Indo-European

root bha- (to shine) that's also the source of beacon, beckon, phantom,

phenomenon, and phosphorous.]

What a dreary drought is the Cmmdr’s career, an aphotic nightmare of hopelessness.
