    Last year I got some complaints that some couldn't find my display. So I got an idea of shooting beems of light into outerspace from the top of my Mega Tree. Anybody try something similar? Any recommendations on LED spotlights or LASERS?

    as far as lasers are concerned, don't. There are regulations and hefty fines when aiming lasers into the air. They do have these spot lights that actually show in the air but I would guess the cost would probably be prohibitive and I would guess that there would be permits required too. Depending on were you live of course

    Lasers would definetly be out as already mentioned

    You may have better luck using a large balloon lit up with a few pixels held by the power supply cable to gain attention to where you are.

    Thanks for the advise guy's, didn't think about the laser restriction. Balloon sounds kinda fun, neighborhood kids would probably like it as well, good target practice for their BB guns. ;)
