Official Norad Santa Tracker 2011, While you’re sipping hot cider today, Santa Claus is busy trying to meet a tight time frame. Luckily, you can follow the fat man’s journey with the NORAD Santa Tracker 2011. The website, available by clicking here, tracks Santa during his international travels.
It relies on radar, satellites, Santa Cams and fighter jets. The site notes, “The moment that radar indicates Santa has lifted off, we use our second detection system. Satellites positioned in geo-synchronous orbit at 22,300 miles from the Earth’s surface are equipped with infrared sensors, which enable them to detect heat. Amazingly, Rudolph’s bright red nose gives off an infrared signature, which allows our satellites to detect Rudolph and Santa.”
In addition to tracking Santa, the site doubles as a geography lesson, letting users view photos of Santa’s destinations. I learned all about Bikini, Marshall Islands.
It will be quite some time before Santa makes it to the U.S., so you might want to perform a few good deeds if you’re not sure about your status on the “nice” list. Also, this should go without saying, but travel likely still increases Santa’s appetite. Don’t skimp on the milk and cookies.
