An effect caused by the sun setting over the horizon creating an optical illusion of shimmering, liquefied light. Akin to a mirage. (Created by Wes Anderson for his film The Royal Tenenbaums: the character Eli Cash reads an excerpt from his book, Old Custer, which contains the word 'friscalating'.)
"And they rode on in the friscalating dusklight." - from The Royal Tenenbaums

As the sun's rays fell upon the shyscraper's facade, the friscalating windows looked surreal.
