When is Santa coming? It’s a question that pops up a lot this time of year. But Santa fans can rest assured they’ll get a quick, detailed answer to that query this holiday season, thanks to the folks at the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).
For more than 50 years, NORAD has been tracking Santa’s journey from chimney to chimney from the agency’s headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The organization — which usually keeps an eye out for threats from ballistic missiles — uses its advanced radar system, as well as satellite imagery, to follow Mr. Claus’ flight path from the North Pole.
NORAD also has a collection of “ultra-cool, high-tech, high-speed digital cameras” that will be used to snap pictures and videos of the man in red as he delivers gifts to everyone on his “nice list.” The candid shots from these SantaCams will be immediately posted on NORAD’s website.
