Color Temperature
The perceived color of a light source varies with the viewer and other 
conditions. Color temperature is an objective measure of the color of a 
light source, defined with reference to the temperature to which an 
object would have to be heated to radiate light in the same 
wavelengths. While light sources with a color temperature in the 
neighborhood of 5,000–5,500 K appear white, light sources with a lower 
color temperature, such as incandescent light bulbs, appear slightly 
yellow or red. Light sources with a higher color temperature appear 
tinged with blue.
