zenith

noun

Definition: 1. the peak or best point; 2. the point in the sky that is directly over the observer's head

Synonyms: top, cap, climax, pinnacle, peak, high point, overhead point in the sky

Antonyms: nadir, bottom

Tips: Zenith ultimately comes from an erroneous transliteration of an Arabic word for "an [overhead] path or road." Think, "highpoint." Zenith is used to indicate both a figurative highpoint (climax) and a literal highpoint (sky).

Usage Examples:

He hoped his new idea would help him reach the zenith of success. (top, highpoint, peak)

As she looked up toward her zenith, she noticed the sun was almost directly overhead. (overhead point in the sky)

Shortly after Beethoven reached the zenith of his career, he lost his hearing. (top, peak, pinnacle)

We reached the zenith of the mountain shortly past noon. (peak, top)
