What do thermal imaging cameras see?

Thermal imaging cameras don’t actually see temperature. Instead they capture the infrared (IR) energy transfer from an object to its environment and produce a real time image in a color palette where hotter objects appear brighter and cooler objects appear darker. IR energy is generated by the vibration of atoms and molecules and behaves similarly to visible light where it can be reflected, refracted, absorbed and emitted. The more these atoms and molecules move, the higher the temperature of the object.
