1. the point when a body orbiting Earth is farthest away from the Earth
During every 27-day orbit around Earth, the Moon reaches both its perigee, about 226,000 miles (363,300 km) from Earth, and its farthest point, or apogee, about 251,000 miles (405,500 km) from Earth.

2. the highest point or the farthest point; the climax
All languages had their birth, their apogee and decline.
