    Something like Jupiter

    But the pressure increases the deeper you go down

    This causes the Hydrogen to change State

    Deeper in Jupiter you get Metalic Liquid Hydrogen

    Jupiter's core is so dense, it is highly radioactive

    Free hydrogen in our Atmosphere like most ot he gases is transperant

    Whatever color it is, don't light a match with Oxygen nearby!!

    Jupiter is mostly Hydrogen, can you look through it?

    Smaller planets cannot exist of hydrogen because they lack the mass to maintain the hydrogen. Only bigger gas planets can, but they compress the gas so severely that it will turn metallic.

    Now you could ask a new question: Would Metallic Hydrogen be transparent?

    Would be a difficult one because for what I know, nobody on Earth has ever been able to make metallic hydrogen. The pressure and energy needed to do so are mind boggling.

    Planets CANNOT be made entirely of hydrogen. ALL planets have rocky rocky cores, including gas AND ice giant planets. There HAS to rock to ANCHOR all that gas, or the solar or stellar wind of the star will dissipate that gas.

    depends on weather the surface is burning or not.
