What is the difference between bike headlights and bike reflectors?

A reflector is like a clever mirror, it doesn't shine by its own but will cause any light that hits it to bounce back in the direction that it came from.

Reflectors are great for being seen by people who are shining a light in your direction while lights can be seen by anyone looking.
