Pilots told authorities they were blinded by laser pointers over the Labor Day weekend in Cleveland.

WKYC reports that the FBI and local authorities are investigating five separate incidents from Sept. 4 to Sept. 6.

Laser pointers pose a dangerous threat to pilots, who can be flash-blinded by beams of light.

“Individuals often do not realize that traveling over hundreds of feet a tiny two-centimeter laser beam spreads to become approximately six feet of light that can block a pilot’s vision,” FBI officials said in a press release. “Most laser strike incidents reported occur at flights under 10,000 feet with the highest percentage being altitudes under 6,000 feet.”
