Apogaic \Ap`o*ga"ic\, a. [Gr. ? far from the earth.] Apogean.

Usage examples of "apogaic".

At length, finding that the lunar angle--the apparent position of the Moon--confirmed the reading of the discometer, giving the same apogaic distance or elevation, I supposed that the barycrite must be out of order or subject to some unsuspected law of which future observations might afford evidence and explanation, and turned to other subjects of interest.

Even the difference between 200 and 201 radii of elevation or apogaic distance was not easily perceptible on either.
