Qiyamah occurring on a Friday

Question

Is the following Hadith correct?

Also is the interpretation correct; that the black dot is the referring to Qiyamah?

“The days were shown to me, and among them Friday was shown to me. It looked like a shiny mirror in the middle of which was a black spot. I asked, ‘What is this?’ It was said, ‘The Hour.'”

Friday is a special day whose virtues have been extolled in the Hadith. Friday has been likened in this hadith to a gleaming mirror. The only thing that mars the beauty of Friday is the fact that it is also the day on which the Hour will commence. Because of this, every Friday, all creatures (apart from humans and jinn) are filled with fear in case this particular Friday be the one on which the Trumpet is blown. Jazakallah
