How do you run only during a certain time during the market open?

I'm very new and trying to learn the ropes. I'm trying to have my algorithm run only during the first hour of the market being open. It seems that using the TimeRules function makes it run at a very specific time, say 10am. But what if I want it to rund from 9:45 to 10:45am? Is there a way to accomplish this? My profile says C# but I'm actually using python

If you are subscribed to minutely data, OnData() will be called every time new data is received from the engine. So you can simply do something like:
 

def OnData(self, data):

# Current timestamp of the algorithm
current_time = self.Time

if (current_time.hours == 9 and current_time.minutes >= 45) or (current_time.hours == 10 and current_time.minutes <= 45):
# do something
