Mapping Santa


In this image provided by noradsanta.org, the official NORAD tracking of Santa Clause is shown on a satellite map of the world, Friday, Dec. 24, 2010. NORAD Tracks Santa, the official name of the exercise, began in 1955 when a Colorado Springs newspaper ad invited kids to talk to Santa on a hotline. The phone number had a typo, and dozens of kids wound up dialing the Continental Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs, the predecessor to NORAD. (AP Photo/NORAD, via noradsanta.org)
