BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Christmas is almost upon us which can only mean one thing: Santa is preparing to come down from the North Pole!
To celebrate, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, has launched its Santa Tracker website .
Santa's journey will last 25 hours this year, starting in far eastern Russia at 5 a.m. eastern time on Christmas Eve — or 10 p.m. local time, according to a Santa tracker from Google.
The agency will be tracking Santa for the 64th year using satellites and radar.
On Christmas Eve, people may call kids can call a live phone operator at 1-877-HI-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) to ask about Santa’s whereabouts, or if you own the Amazon virtual assistant, you'll be able to ask for Santa's location through the NORAD Tracks Santa skill for Alexa.
