Default laser range?

i tried searchin around for this on here for awhile and really couldn't find the answer i was looking for...

what do you guys think would be the typical range of a laser? distance visible that is for various mW'age's :-? 50 ft? 100 ft? 1 mile? just curious...

depends what laser your talking about. depends on the divergence, but most green lasers can touch the clouds, now your ability to see it is another story, that just depends how powerful your laser is.
some green lasers can go up to 10 miles, some 40, you know im not really sure lol, but yes you are looking at MILES, not feet.

there truly are a lot of factors in how far a laser can "go" that' it's really not even worth trying to figure it out. 1. dust and particulates in the air reduce it's ability to go far. 2. divergence. if the divergence is bad so is it's distance. 3. Power output. obviously a higher mw laser is going to shoot farther. I have pictures of a 130mw green reflecting off a sign a mile away. fun stuff.

With a 30x 50 spotting scope and a laser rated at 26.3mn with lowered divergence shone on a very light bluegreen in color water tower a 6 miles away, 12 miles round trip I was able to see a faint spot
