The NORAD Santa Tracker

Written By David D'Angelo on Wednesday, December 30, 2009 | 12/30/2009

This year NORAD had once again successfully tracked Santa's route of gift giving around the world, from Santa's take off in the North Pole to his last destination on the planet. Besides the tracking they also get ahold of exclusive videos from Santa riding his famous sleigh lead by Rudolph.

NORAD Santa Tracking though an honest CGI script rendition makes it appear and real to its sites visitors that Santa Claus really exist. By the mere looks of the animation you will see that it is not even a bit real.

The NORAD site www.noradsanta.org narrated the beginning of the Santa Tracking tradition which date backs 1955,

The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement for children to call Santa misprinted the telephone number. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief's operations "hotline." The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south from the North Pole. Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born.

Norad says that in order to track Santa they are using four high-tech systems to track Santa – radar, satellites, Santa Cams and fighter jets.

For the 2009 videos of Santa Clause you can visit NORAD Tracks Santa on YouTube.
