Northern Lights

I was doing some research for a childrens book and was looking at colors in nature. I came across these photos on flickr of the Northern lights. The Northern lights, also known as the Dance of the Spirits or, polar auroras, are only visible from the Northern Hemisphere. I am not exactly sure why this happens but, it has something to do with the Earths magnetic field and long periods of darkness. This is so absolutely beautiful. I am going to have to see this for myself someday.

I was also looking at Imbibe magazine and saw this recipe for an appropriately titled cocktail...

3/4 oz. Drambuie
