The same organization that almost blew up the world in “War Games” knows exactly where Santa is this year.
Per Macworld, NORAD, the Colorado Springs-based military organization responsible for the aerospace and maritime defense of the United States and Canada, has released the the NORAD Tracks Santa app available for free from the App Store and the Android Market.
According to Colorado Springs app maker Visionbox: “The NORAD Tracks Santa App is the official mobile app of the NORAD Tracks Santa program. Watch the days countdown to Santa’s flight, follow Santa’s progress on December 24, play ‘Elf Toss’ to help Santa’s elves deliver presents, and learn about NORAD and its mission.”
Santa can also be tracked via a second-by-second countdown on the NORAD website as well as in 3D via Google Earth. Last year, the NORAD site had more than 15 million visitors on Christmas Eve, according to USA Today.
