In addition to tracking Santa on NORADSanta.org with help from NORAD and Microsoft, people can also call the NORAD command center right from the site by using Skype for free.

As Santa departs the North Pole on December 24th, a touch-enabled 3D globe on NORADSanta.org will light up and follow his movements. With a modern browser like IE11 and a touch enabled device, you’ll be able to spin the globe with a swipe of a finger and pinch and zoom to get an in-depth look at Santa’s stops. Bing Maps is at the heart of the journey; whether you’re mapping Santa’s route on a computer or in an app, you’ll see beautiful, high-fidelity images. You can even visit Santa’s village at the North Pole, play new games daily, listen to music and watch videos.

What makes NORADSanta.org truly interactive is that you and your kids can use Skype Click to Call to talk to the NORAD command center right from the website to find out exactly how Santa is doing along the way. Kids can call for free anytime on Christmas Eve in order to check up on Santa’s real-time progress from the North Pole to their chimney.
