Sky Laser

What is a sky laser?

Sky lasers are show laser systems used outdoor to make a certain point visible and exposed from a long distance. The term "sky laser" is mainly used in Europe and America as well as "skylaser" or "sky beam laser" whereas in Asian countries the term "landmark laser" is more common.

Which show laser is the best sky laser?

Regarding the far beam distance which can add up to several kilometers and taking into account the absence of fog and haze, high laser power of several Watts as well as very low divergence is essential. Thus the laser beam will be bright and sharp. This is the reason why OPSL modules suit best for this purpose as they have a better beam divergence in comparison to diode sources.
Furthermore you'll have to consider the beam color. Green laser sources are more visible than others.

Video example of a sky laser

For what purpose do I need a sky laser?

Any venue where visibility over long distances is needed. E.g. discos in rural areas or hidden in plain sight between scyscrapers get high attention thanks to high visible showlaser beams in the sky.
