Since "noon" and "midnight" mean twelve o'clock in the daytime
and at night, respectively, wouldn't "twelve noon" and "twelve midnight"
** Unless you want to emphasize precision. I think different levels of
precision could be understood from "noon," "twelve noon,"
"12:00 noon," and "12:00:00 noon."
