Post Precautions to take before observing a laser in the sky

Hello LPF! I just started this account after purchasing a 35 mW Viper from Dragon Lasers. I have been using some cheap red glasses that designate they are safe for 532 nm. However, my question is not about eye safety. It's about the safety of planes.

I live in Tuscaloosa, AL (United States)

I enjoy the science of lasers and observing them. I went outside, checked a flight radar, then pointed out a star. Nearby, I saw a low flying plane (it looked like one for personal use) flying at night. I immediately stopped shining the laser and continued the observation on the ground. I don't even want to risk shining it at a plane.

My question is: "What precautions should I take to completely ensure the safety of planes when using a laser?"

Other questions... If it's not shone at a plane, is it legal to shine in the sky? Do people get messed with by authorities because of their sky shining laser practices?

And after you do that, head straight to Laser Pointer Safety and have a nice day

Edit: Unless they don't list the laser laws for your specific country.
