IT IS NOT POSSIBLE WITH ANY TELESCOPE, EVEN THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE !

Go to that link for a detailed, scientific answer as to why we cannot see it. The simple answer is we are way too far away !...........I'm sorry, but I am an astronomy major and the statement that we could not even see it with the hubble telescope is completely untrue. However, the answer is NO, you cannot see it from Earth, even with a powerfull telescope.
