Color temperature is a characteristic of light that is sometimes misunderstood as brightness, when it's more closely related to cool and warm color tones of light. While cool and warm are words used to describe a light's temperature, it is not how it gets its name. The term temperature when referring to light comes from the idea that there is a black body object that absorbs all wavelengths of light. This theoretical object that you can't physically see is what generates light when it is heated. The black body becomes exited and begins to essentially expel light radially. As the temperature reaches around 1000 degrees Kelvin (a measurement scale invented by Lord Kelvin) the black body becomes visible in the red end of the light spectrum. As it's heated the light color changes towards the cooler tones. So the term color temperature refers to the color that is associated with the amount of heat needed to produce a color. These cooler tones emit a brighter light that is very useful when making automotive headlights because it increases visibility and thus safety.
