That's a rather strange question from someone who claims to be interested in ancient Egypt. You know the answer - the heliacal rising of Sirius preceded the Inundation, without which Egypt would not have existed, therefore it became an important star, apart from being the brightest object in the sky, bar Venus and Moon.
