Cron Schedule question

What Cron could I use to schedule a search to only run between the hours of 18:00 through until 08:00 the next day?

I'm not sure it's possible.

The idea is that a search should only run Out Of Hours, whereby an email notification will be sent to get someone out of bed, should a poisitive reuslt be found off the search.

Any ideas?
