Flash's Date() object always return you the time for the local PC that's running the SWF...
So, assuming that you are defining 6PM ~ 6AM to be night, you can do something along this line to determine it...

function getNight()
{
      var _now:Date = new Date();
      var _hr:Number = _now.getHours();
      
      if ((_hr < 6) || (_hr > 18))
      {
            trace("It is night here...");
      }
      else
      {
            trace("It is not night here...");
      }
}

getNight();

I don't understand the offline bit though...
