Visible Light is the only electromagnetic wave humans can see.
The wavelength range is 400nm-700nm
The velocity in a vacuum is 300,000,000 m/s
Light only takes 1.255 seconds to get to the Moon to the Earth.
Some animals can see other parts of the electromagnetic wave that humans can't see. For example, boa constrictors and pythons are some of them.
