NORAD Santa Tracker

NORAD is the bi-national U.S.-Canadian military organization responsible for the aerospace and maritime defense of the United States and Canada. For more than 50 years, NORAD has tracked Santa’s Christmas Eve flight by using four high-tech systems – radar, satellites, Santa Cams and fighter jets.

By having high-speed digital cameras pre-positioned at many locations around the world only on Christmas Eve they are able to capture images and videos of Santa and his reindeer as they make their journey around the world.

Your children will enjoy seeing Santa's journey on the NORAD Tracks Santa homepage and they can also track his flight in Google Earth.

Make sure you visit the Kids' Countdown Village discover new surprises and join in on the fun!
