I want to know whether an electron looks like a vague cloud when observed through the most poweful microscope or as a clear particle with definite location and size. I know that electron's position cannot be accurately measured because of uncertainity principle. But I want to know whether it is possible to atleast make some measurement inspite of it's uncertainity or will we only get to see a vague cloud in which electron can be anywhere and cannot be measured at all? Kindly clarify my doubt as soon as possible. I know very little about physics and I have no idea if what I ask even makes sense. But I like to have some idea on that. Thanks in advance.
