No. It is far, far too small to be "seen" in any way in which we "look" at other stuff. Light, which is the medium for seeing things in the normal sense, is too "large" for the tiny electrons. We see things because the things we are looking at reflect light. The reflected light is what we form images with. Electrons are too tiny to reflect light. They are more likely to be "bumped around" by the light photons.
