[quote:LASERGURU 28023670:MV8yMDU3MjAwXzM0NTk1MzU2X0FFODIyMDdD] [quote:Anonymous Coward 27963234:MV8yMDU3MjAwXzM0NTk0NzcyXzI0NkM0OTVF] [/quote] could we work some assumptions depending on the make, angle & height of the craft at the time? obviously certain planes simply have no windows pointing the to ground unless the plane is landing or banking right? [/quote] Wouldnt really matter, its entirely possible and have read of people doing this. The initial beam is tiny, averaging 2-3mm collimated to parallel. To get the angle would simply require the operator of said laser to be holding it at the top of a small window aiming down, keeping it as close the bottom edge of the frame as possible. As the beam covers distance and diverges, it becomes quite large. The ground viewer would not see a small dot, rather a large area being covered. To assume anything related to the plane other than height would pointless. Saying they were 'scanning', as in rendering an image, is unlikely. Either the OP is exaggerating, or the person who saw it was. Military uses IR systems, not visible wavelengths for one. Camera systems, guidance, all infrared. Even the small survey systems they use to scan a crime scene or construction site are IR. Using visible wavelengths means that they cant filter out the noise given off by street lights, cars, houses, and during a day operation, DAYLIGHT.. For further assumption, lets refer to Occam's razor :tounge: [/quote]
My son came home at 3 am this morning.He told me that while he was walking home from the subway a plane of some sort was fling over head he looked up at it and saw that it had a green light on the bottom of the plane from which a green laser scanned across a large area of ground and passed over him as well,a gas station attendent saw the same thing as him and tried to hide from it.He stayed out side for awhile and the plane continued ot fly over the area scanning.Did anyone else happen to see this or does anyone know what this could be about?
