NORAD will track Santa once again

Just like they did last year, NORAD will once again be tracking the flight of Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.
They’ve just launched the site for this year at (where’s it been for a few years now). The actual tracker will go live at 6am EST on December 24. The site currently shows a countdown to the launch, though they have a few games you can play.
On Christmas Eve you’ll be able to track Santa in Google Earth, Google Maps, using the Google Earth plugin and on most mobile phones by using the NoradSanta site. You can also follow them on Twitter (@noradsanta) to get updates on his latest position.
Here are highlights from last year’s journey:
