A small group of people can see “invisible” colors that no one else can, discovers David Robson, a columnist for BBC Future. How do they do that?

When Concetta Antico took her students to the park for an art lesson, she would often ask them about the different shades that she could distinguish.

“I’d say, ‘Look at the light in the water: can you see the pink shining through the rock? Can you see the red on the edge of that sheet?'” They nodded their heads.

Years later, she realized that it was only out of courtesy that they did not tell her the truth: the colors she saw so vividly were invisible to them.
