: : re - I ask, do we see it? - Yes.

: Say, how do you see light?

: What is it's color?

: What is it's form?

: Is it big or small?

We see light because its reflected from a body ... You see red color object because it absorbs all other radiation except red Light Wavelength which is reflected . You cannot see light in space only The source since there is nothing to reflect upon in space.

If you are seeing it space the only reason is YOU are reflecting it hence you see yourself and the source...

: I can see sun, fire, lamp, etc. But then i see light-source amnd it's color.
