NORAD Technology Is being Used To Help Track Santa

Once again, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is helping out track Santa whereabouts with the launch of the Official NORAD Tracks Santa page on Google+, making it easy for Santa fans of all ages to share their stories of festive season leading up to the big day itself!

According to Brian McClendon, who is the VP of Engineering at Google Earth and Maps, he said in a post on the Google Latlong Blog;


The countdown to track Santa begins today. Visit the entire month of December to play holiday games and learn fun facts about NORAD and Santa. Set a reminder for 2 a.m. EST on December 24 to start tracking Santa in real-time on the website using Google Maps, and in 3D with Google Earth. If your phone is handy on Christmas Eve, you can also search for [santa] on Google Maps for mobile to track his journey on the go.
