Millions Watching Santa's Progress Online
NORAD is keeping tabs on his travels
ANCHORAGE - He has his list and has checked it twice, all the preparations for this year are in place and not even jolly Old Saint Nick can avoid technology. Yes, millions are watching his progress this Christmas Eve.
For 55 years, the men and women of the Alaska NORAD Region Command have been tracking Santa and his sleigh.
The experts say they start tracking him as he leaves the North Pole and as he delivers presents to children around the world.
NORAD gives up to the minute details of Kris Kringle's location for eager children as he goes on his journey to spread joy -- and merchandise -- across the world.
Trackers say Santa appears to be on course and will cross into Alaska before night ends.
Alaska NORAD Region experts say Santa and his reindeer should make their landing in Anchorage tonight by 10:15 p.m.
Matthew Lucas from the Alaska NORAD Region said, "With the 10:15 ETA, I would strongly recommend kids don't even chance it -- get in there, get in to sleep before 10 p.m."
