Is there a slim hope that the deadline will be postponed for a few days? 5 maybe?

I hate to sound stupid but which night is the deadline? I looked up midnight on wikipedia and there is some confusion as to which day 0:00 belongs to

"In 24-hour time notation, "00:00" and "00:00:00" refer to midnight at the start of a given date. Some styles, such as ISO 8601, allow 24:00 to refer to the end of a day. Noon is 12:00:00."

I assume that the intended time is the boundary between Sunday and Monday but i would love if I were wrong.
