Video: Google Earth tracks Santa

See Santa Claus in action

Tracking Santa used to be a task that only NORAD tackled, but this year for the first time Google has signed on to help.

The two teamed up to track the big man as he hurdled across the globe delivering presents to all those on the nice list. Google Earth allowed for close up views of Santa and according to NORADsanta.org, the US military’s been tracking St. Nick since the 1950s.

The NORAD Santa Tracker is viewable this year in 3D using Google Earth. Go to the official NORAD Santa Tracker website to get the details and to choose the language of your choice.
