In astronomy and astrology, the prime vertical is the vertical circle passing east and west through the zenith of a specific location, and intersecting the horizon in its east and west points.

It is the vertical circle that lies at right angles to the meridian, and passes through the East point, Zenith, West point and Nadir of any place.[1]
