zenith
The point on a celestial sphere directly overhead the observer. It is called the observer's zenith. An astronomical zenith is where an imaginary plumb line through the observer and the center of the earth intersects the celestial sphere. A geographical zenith is where a line perpendicular to smooth earth intersects the celestial sphere. These terms, however, are not synonymous. The point 180° from the zenith is called the nadir.
