I had been presented with a disappearing light experiment conducted by
David A Chalmers
in 2001. Let me present you with my experiment.
I had been observing blue Light-Emitting Diode (LED) using a 3D object recognition technique.
WARNING - Do not try this experiment yourself, because LED might seriously damage your eyesight.
I couldn't recognise if photons were exact spheres, but they were moving around the LED similarly like electrons.
I could clearly see the movement of each photon. The diameter of a photon by the observation method was about 1.5 mm.
Movement of each photon created one ellipse. Each photon made 1 revolution in about 1 second.
Each photon disappeared twice and appeared twice at the same point during each revolution.
I observed a 3D object created by the movement of photons where each photon created 2 sides of it.
About 30 observed photons created an object with about 60 sides (looking like a sphere).
As observation distance from the LED source of blue photons was changing, the diameter of a sphere was changing too.
The closer I was, the smaller and darker sphere I saw, the farther I was, the bigger and lighter sphere I saw.
The size of photons wasn't changing during observation distance change of the sphere object.
From about 0,5 metre distance I could see about 50 mm dark blue sphere.
From about 1,0 metre distance I could see about 100 mm blue sphere.
From about 1,5 metre distance I could see about 150 mm light blue sphere.
