Is light opaque? Explain.

Light is an electromagnetic wave. It has no physical substances for us to see. An opaque object is neither transparent (allowing all light to pass through) nor translucent (allowing some light to pass through). A lighted candle flame is opaque and we cannot see through it. But light spreading away from the light source is transparent and we can see through it.
