I'm new here and I'm sure others have asked the same question. I understand viewing a particle of light would involve you using light which wouldn't work. But using your wit and process of elimination you could theorize what a light photon could look like. Once again I'm new and have no serious background in physics just a love for it and a lot of questions, so forgive me if I waste anyone's time. But, if a photon is the smallest form of light then could one say that the photon is non luminescent and absent of light? Imagine standing next to a stationary particle of light, a life size photon would you be able to see it?
