As I recall, Local Solar Time is also known as Apparent Solar Time, and
is defined as when the sun reaches its highest point over some local
meridian of interest (town hall?).

That point in time is called 00:00:00... Which sort of makes sense because
you can directly observe high-noon, but midnight can only be estimated.
