apogee

1. (Astronomy) That point in the orbit of the moon which is at the greatest distance from the earth.
2. The farthest or highest point; culmination.

"But in retrospect, this period would prove to be the apogee of O'Sullivan's career, although he always felt bigger and better things were on his way."
--Edward L. Widmer, Young America: The Flowering of Democracy in New York City
