When you point a laser into the sky at night from the air,

the beam can look like this.

Look at the brightest “hit” from a video of a police helicopter incident.

Glare — the pilot in the plane  cannot see past the light as long as the laser is on the cockpit windscreen.

Flash Blindness and afterimage — the pilot cannot see until the afterimage has faded.
