Sidereal noon and 'apparent noon' can be in the afternoon. Which is both visibly and demonstrably true, and confusing. But I've gone for 'not in the afternoon' because you don't have a snowflake or 'both' option, and if I arranged to be somewhere at noon it'd form part of the morning's activity in my head, not the afternoon's (because the getting there part happens in the morning).
