As an adjective[edit]

Maybe I'm wrong but can't night be used as an adjective as in "the night sky"?--Kylemew 21:10, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Yes, that’s an adjective. In the case of night vision, it is not an adjective, but a compound noun. —Stephen 12:51, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
Uh, where's the difference? --Florian Blaschke 19:42, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

To mean near/close?[edit]

English is not my first language so it is possible I have been just misinterpreting things, but I would swear I have seen "night" use in this meaning, like "the time is night" or "night-invulnerability" yet I could not find this meaning here or in other dictionary I looked up. Is it incorrect?
