Santa Trackers

Yes, Santa Claus is getting ready to go. Rudolph and the other reindeer are getting last minute pep talks. By the way, did you know that both male and female reindeer have antlers? Yep. So Rudolph might actually be a girl! Go girl go!

Norad (North American Aerospace Defense Command) has been tracking Santa for 60 years now. They have the “official” web tracker. They were tracking before the internet was invented!!

But of course, Google has eyes over all the world too. So in case Norad goes down or gets too busy, you can check here too.

Update late pm Dec 23.

I checked both trackers and discovered they show Santa starting at different times. I looked around and discovered that Norad starts tracking Santa at 7am GMT on Christmas Eve, and Google will be tracking Santa from 10am GMT on Christmas Eve.

Greenwich Mean Time is 8 hours ahead of Pacific Time: Norad starts 11pm Dec 23, Google starts 2am Dec 24.
So basically, he is already moving!
