Why is midnight correct when this lesson is about places? Why not North?

North should be correct too.

In Polish directions are related to sun.

północ= North/midnight
południe=South/noon
wschód=East wschód (słońca)=sunrise
zachód=West zachód (słońca)=sunset

I stop being surprised by simplicity of some basic things in different languages, after I found out that in Japanese months names are - first moon, second moon, etc

The north remembers.
