Picture of an atom visible to the naked eye

I always thought atoms were far beyond the vision of the naked eye. Well, apparently I was wrong.

Behold ... an atom of Strontium.

Apparently that little sucker is 215 billionths of a millimeter. Not sure how we can see that as that is really really small but there it is. That little blue dot between the metal things.

digital camera on a long exposure shot ... sure the resultant pic is viswible but not the atom to the naked eye. Tricky wording.
