### Angle of Elevation& Angle of Depression

When a person looks at something above his/her location, the angle between the line of sight and the horizontal is called the angle of elevation. In this case, the line of sight is "elevated" above the horizontal.

When a person looks at something the angle between the below his or her location, the angle between the line of sight and the horizontal is called the angle of depression. In this case, the line of sight is "depressed" below the horizontal.
