Emerging from the light of the sun, or passing into it; rising or setting at the same, or nearly the same, time as the sun. --Sir T. Browne. [1913 Webster] Note: The heliacal rising of a star is when, after being in conjunction with the sun, and invisible, it emerges from the light so as to be visible in the morning before sunrising.
