Military time, or astronomical time, divides the day into 24 hours. Midnight is 00:00 hours and refers to the start of a new day, and 24:00 (twenty-four hundred) hours is the correct verbiage for midnight at the end of a day. The last minute of a day is 23:59 hours. One hour past midnight is 01:00 ("zero one hundred") hours.
