How to use "Heliacal" in context?

What is a heliacal? Heliacal refers to the radiant appearance of the sun during the heliacal transition. This occurs when the sun is on the horizon and becoming lower in the sky. This is a time when the sun is most visible and most active. It is also referred to as the heliacal rising. During the heliacal transition, the sun appears to suddenly "wake up" and become more active. This might be due to increased convection and heat within the sun's atmosphere. This increased activity is also seen as a change in color, with the red, yellow, and orange spectrum becoming more evident.
