I see claims for lasers being visible 50-100 miles away on many of the websites. Here's my question: What would be seen by someone at a distance of 50+ miles when they are at the other end of the beam? How is this tested? I live against an uninhabited mountain desert area but it is a bit hard to get to it and test this as there are no real roads to it. Obviously no one should beam someone up close but what about the mountainside about 12 miles away if I were to send someonme with a camera up there?
