NORAD on the Net

The North American Radar Aerospace Defense (NORAD) has little to do since the collapse of the Soviet Union, so they put a great deal of effort into tracking Santa Claus each year. It's not even eleven in the morning here in my cozy little burg, but on the other side of the world, it's already Chritmas morning; below you can see where Santa has already stopped on his annual delivery trip:
This year NORAD has teamed up with Google Earth to bring a high-tech display of the eight reindeerpower flight path of Santa and his sleigh. So you can zoom and pan at will, and see pictures and videos of the locations Santa has visited.
I don't know how long this page will be up, but after Christmas morning, I'm pretty sure it'll be static for a year, after Santa returns to his workshop.
