Norad Santa Tracker 2016 – Santa Tracker
So on December 24th, 1955, a nice, little girl saw an ad in the newspaper saying to call a certain number to find out the whereabouts of Santa Claus (me) but dialed the wrong number. Instead, she called the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) Operations Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
There were a lot of miscalls that night and Colonel Harry Shoup and his operators stayed up all night, letting everybody who called know where I was.
In 1958, NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) was formed and since then, have used satellites, jet fighters and high-powered radars to keep track of my journey around the world, delivering presents to all the good little girls and boys.
Thousands of people have volunteered to answer calls and reply to emails that night. Live updates are given through the site linked below, now in 7 different languages.
To keep track of me, Santa Claus, this Christmas 2016, just visit the Official NORAD Santa Tracker.
