As Santa commences his 510,000,000 km journey at 1800 miles / second, children can track his progress around the world starting at islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!
A great website to track Santa’s progress flying West is NORAD. They normally monitor North American airspace but on Christmas Eve they look out for Santa’s sleigh! Their radar system will be checking for Santa leaving the North Pole and once detected their satellites will track Rudolph’s bright red nose! From past data they have told Wakefield Mumbler that this is around 08:00am!
Google’s Santa Tracker will also be keeping a check on Santa’s journey around the globe. You and your kids will be able to keep up with his progress from 10:00am.
There’s loads of games on Google Santa Tracker too and it’s really well animated!! Santa was on a tropical island relaxing on 19th December as his elves were busy in the workshop and Rudolph had video called him back to the North Pole!
