What is the difference between a dark reflecting nebula and light relfecting nebula?

A nebula is a region of interstellar gas and dust. Dark nebulae such as the Horsehead Nebula are so dense that they block light from other sources, such as background emission nebulae, reflection nebulae, or other stars. Other types of nebulae do reflect light. Emission nebulae are clouds of ionized gas that allow red, blue, and violet light through. Generally, these nebulae appear reddish. Reflection nebulae are clouds of dust that simply reflect light from nearby stars. The dust particles of reflection nebulae usually only scatter blue light, so the appearance is blue.

Why doesn't the Horsehead Nebula glow like other nebulae?

Horsehead Nebula doesn't glow like other nebulae because it is older than other nebulae and was probably a lot smaller. In addition, Horsehead Nebula is farther away from the Earth than other nebulae, so it may seem that it doesn't glow as bright as other nebulae. No, this isn't right! The horsehead nebula doesn't glow for one reason - it isn't illuminated by any stars whose energy is enough to make the gas shine. That's the only difference between a 'bright' diffuse nebula (like M42) and a 'dark' one like the Horsehead or the Coalsack. M42 (the Orion nebula) is bright because there are several hot, energetic stars embedded inside it, and which cause it to 'shine'.
