NORAD Tracks Santa LIVE Christmas Eve!
Well it’s that time of year again when NORAD, famous for it’s satellite tracking facilities, is showing us Santa’s progress again as he delivers presents to all the good little boys and girls throughout the world.
Tonight on Christmas Eve NORAD is using a combination of no less than five high-tech systems to track Santa Claus - with state of the art radar, GPS, satellites, Santa Cams and jet fighter aircraft. And it can be watched LIVE online at the NORAD Tracks Santa website. While you’re at it your kids can check out Santa’s official North Pole site too.
While we’ve been tracking Santa since 2004 with Google Earth, a team of dedicated Google Maps engineers have built a new route algorithm to chart Santa’s journey around the world on Christmas Eve. On his sleigh, arguably the fastest airborne vehicle in the world, Santa whips from city to city delivering presents to millions of homes. You’ll be able to follow him on Google Maps and Google Earth, and get his stats starting at 2:00 a.m. PST Christmas Eve at google.com/santatracker.
In addition, with some help from developer elves, we’ve built a few other tools to help you track Santa from wherever you may be. Add the Chrome extension or download a Android app. to keep up with Santa from your smartphone or tablet. And to get the latest updates on his trip, follow Google Maps on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
Rudolph with your nose so bright, won’t you guide my sleigh tonight. Now Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid! On Donner and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now, dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”
Ho, Ho, Ho .. and Merry Christmas from Blog Bloke!
