Tracking Santa NORAD style
My daughter was curious about how Santa actually flies from the North Pole to over the whole world in order to deliver presents to all the children.
She asked me if he sleeps on Christmas Eve and if reindeer actually fly. How does he go to all the places?
So I simply showed her Santa’s tracks, thanks to satellite technology, Google and NORAD (yes, NORAD – as in North American Aerospace Defense Command). NORAD has set-up tracking systems to pinpoint exactly where Santa is at any given moment and through Google Earth, you can now see his flight path as he hops from city to city across the globe – no joke:
You can watch the details on Google Earth or watch Santa caught of video as he rides his sleigh through various parts of the world: www.noradsanta.org
