I would estimate 1 mile, you can find the charts or watch the video:)

Could someone tell me the rules for spotting in the US? Is there any rules about that?

Just be aware of your surroundings. Sometimes, TSA and/or local police can be stubborn about spotters, some of them even go as far as having a full sit-down interrogation. However, one time I was spotting at LGA but the TSA was totally fine with it.
Try and see if there are any official spotting areas, just standing on a sidewalk of a busy main road is not only dangerous but gets the attention of the police.
