As children of the world prepare for Santa Claus’s visit on Christmas, they can track him onlineÂ by radar thanks to the 2009 NORAD Santa Tracker.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) will track Santa Claus by radar as he makes his annual trip across the world on Christmas Eve.Â Children can go to NORADâ€™s Web site to see where the jolly fellow and his reindeer are located at the time.
â€œAmazingly, Rudolphâ€™s bright red nose gives off an infrared signature, which allow our satellites to detect Rudolph and Santa,â€ according to the NORAD Web site.
Google Earth will also track Santa this year.
The NORAD site also includes a countdown until Santa’s flight begins, updates from the North Pole, and frequently asked questions about SantaÂ (for example: how does he get down the chimney?)
