There are also retroreflective objects marketed to cyclists (and
elsewhere) involving very small glass spheres made of glass of
whatwever variant has refractive index that favors a significant and
notable bit of
retroreflection. One thing that comes to my mind is "Scotchlite"
(tm) by 3M.

Alas, that does not mean that any of this (with the possible
exception of bicycle reflectors) is currently readily available to
pimpom (OP).

There is always a reflective car number plate.

Brings to mind another of the weird ideas I have...

How would you detect the PRESENCE of such a reflector? About 50'
away, along about a 12' horizontal line, 2' to 4' off the ground.

Good question ! The number plate recognition cameras seem to be able to
do it, even in the dark.
