Follow Santa Around the World Officially with NORAD

Norad is short for North American Aerospace Defense.  The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is a bi-national United States and Canadian organization charged with the missions of aerospace warning, aerospace control and maritime warning for North America. Aerospace warning includes the monitoring of man-made objects in space, and the detection, validation, and warning of attack against North America whether by aircraft, missiles, or space vehicles, through mutual support arrangements with other commands. Aerospace control includes ensuring air sovereignty and air defense of the airspace of Canada and the United States. The May 2006 NORAD Agreement renewal added a maritime warning mission, which entails a shared awareness and understanding of the activities conducted in U.S. and Canadian maritime approaches, maritime areas and inland waterways. 

Needless to say on Dec 24th flying around the skies is "space vehicle" shall we say and they make this info available to us so we can track where in the world is our dear St Nick.  Go check it out tomorrow night!  Here is the link....
