There are now some advanced microscopes that will allow molecules to be seen in fine resolutions. Do remember that while molecules can be seen, it will be harder to pinpoint the molecular bonds that the molecules have. Normal molecules may differ depending on the type of matter that is being checked. Solid molecules are known to stick close to each other.

Liquid molecules are farther apart while gas molecules are barely seen next to each other. It is not possible to see molecules through the naked eye because of the amount of light that enters our eyes. We need special gadgets like the microscope in order to see molecules and such.

The answer to this question depends on what kind of a microscope is being used. For example, there are simple, compound, stereo, confocal, scanning electron, and transmission electron microscopes. In 2015, a new scanning electron microscope, one of only three in the world at that time, was unveiled at the United Kingdom’s Super STEM facility for Advanced Electron Microscopy.

This microscope can view objects a million times smaller than a human hair. If you were to look at a molecule using this microscope you would be able to see its individual atoms.
