Yes. Light need to enter our eye for us to see any object. Normally, we do not see the path of ray when we use a laser pointer. The light path shown in the movie(e.g. Star War) for laser rays are not real, especially in the space. Nothing can reflect those light. The sun is always shining even in the evening. But we did not see the sun light at night because those light go away from us. Only when some of those light hit ths surface of moon and reflected back to our eys so that we can see the moon. :-)
