Track Santa's progress around the globe!

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - The lists have been checked twice. Rudolph & the other reindeer are cleared for flight. Santa Claus is on his way to town!

As in years past, the North American Aerospace Defense Command is tracking Santa's progress around the Earth. This is the 62nd Anniversary of tracking Santa’s yuletide journey.

It all started in 1955 when a local media advertisement directed children to call Santa direct – only the number was misprinted.  Instead of reaching Santa, the phone rang through to the Crew Commander on duty at the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center.  Thus began the tradition, which NORAD carried on since it was created in 1958.

In case you're wondering, Santa's flight won't be impacted by the weather in Arizona. Temperatures Christmas morning will be in the low 40s across Metro Tucson under mostly clear skies.
