Under the Sunbeams

Between 8.5 degrees and 17 degrees from the Sun. This is a mild accidental debility. Greater than the moiety but less than the orb from the Sun's center. The origin of this concept may be the heliacal rising of the Moon which is obscured by the Sun's light until it is 17 degrees away from the Sun. Jonathan Clark added, "Although instructions for celebrating the New Moon each month are contained in the Old Testament, there was traditionally a second celebration which occurred a couple of days later at the time that the moon could actually be seen for the first time; at the time of the New Moon it was, of course, invisible."
