I heard 72 hours but if it's still there after 5 days I guess that is incorrect.

Yeeee!

Till the Mothership is killed, I believe.

As incursions are Farmed, it might be a while.

Woo! CSM XI!

About a week, iirc.

As has been said, for about a week or until the mothership has been killed (It becomes vulnerable soon after the incursion starts). Most incursion runners agree to farm incursions though so they won't kill the mothership until the incursion is nearly over anyway.

One thing worth mentioning is that relatively recently some people have been running around closing high-sec incursions as quickly as possible so they were up for a day or two at most. This was a few weeks ago and I'm not sure if it's still going on so until someone from the incursion running community could confirm/disprove this I wouldn't take my word as fact.

Confirming the above.

Incursions are over if 1 of the following things is fulfilled:

- Incursion started 1 week ago (as usual EVE stuff takes downtime as point of reference)
- The mothership is destroyed.

As stated above, most incursion runners mutually agree to farm a high-sec incursion, meaning they won't kill the mothership in the first couple of days. This way they can run the incursion sites for a couple of days, on one of the last days they will take the mothership out or they just let the 1 week timer pass and move to next incursion.
