That's why I typically never point my laser up into the sky at night unless it is low overcast. They are fun to play with, but you don't want to have some dunce pilot wrongfully claim that you were shining him.

If you're going to play with a laser, you should at least look up your state laws on such things so you don't run a foul of the law by "accident".

Obviously, shining an aircraft is not taken lightly by the federal governement, who is well within their authority to prosecute people who interfere with the safety of air transportation and aviation.
