Here are a number of items to make this Christmas a very special one!!!
Track Santa as he Delivers Gifts
Every year NORAD tracks Santa's progress. NORAD uses four high-tech systems to track Santa -- radar, satellites, Santa Cams and fighter jets.
The moment that radar indicates Santa has lifted off, they use a satellilte detection system. Satellites positioned in geo-synchronous orbit at 22,300 miles from the Earth's surface are equipped with infrared sensors, which enable them to detect heat. Amazingly, Rudolph's bright red nose gives off an infrared signature, which allow the satellites to detect Rudolph and Santa.
