NORAD Santa Tracker

santa

Every year the  North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), United States and Canada bi-national organization charged with the missions of aerospace warning, aerospace control, and maritime warning for North America, uses its state-of-the-art jets and equipment to track Santa. This includes the jets and special Santacams.

Santa usually starts at the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean and travels west. So, historically, Santa visits the South Pacific first, then New Zealand and Australia. After that, he shoots up to Japan, over to Asia, across to Africa, then onto Western Europe, Canada, the United States, Mexico and Central and South America. Keep in mind, Santa’s route can be affected by weather, so it’s really unpredictable. NORAD coordinates with Santa’s Elf Launch Staff to confirm his launch time, but from that point on, Santa calls the shots.
