The spirit of the season and a wondrous curiosity electrify many people's imaginations during the holidays, especially on Christmas Eve. Google teamed up again this year with NORAD, to bring you the NORAD Santa Tracker. NORAD provides aerospace warning and control for North America 365 days a year. On Christmas Eve, they turn their attention to Santa, tracking his yearly gift-delivering journey from the North Pole. The Santa Tracker itself goes live at 6am EST on December 24th.

On Christmas Eve, you can return to the NORAD Tracks Santa homepage to track Santa on a Google map. If you would like to also track Santa in Google Earth – which shows 3D mountains, valleys, and buildings by downloading the Google Earth application.

A glimpse from last year….NORAD tracking Santa around the world!
