when light hits a collection of matter, some of the energy “bounces off” the edge of the object as a reflected beam. Most objects reflect light in all directions pretty equally, no matter what the direction of the incoming beam. Many reflect light of a particular color more than light of other colors. Some materials, such as metal or glass, can be polished to cause the reflected beam to leave the surface at an angle. This allows mirrors to create images.
