Santa is on his way and NORAD has shared the process of tracking the big man himself.

Christmas is hours away but in children-time, just one more sleep.

DrumFM spoke with Captain Cameron Hillier from NORAD in Colorado and where Kris Kringle is and has been.

"Santa right now is on the Eastern hemisphere proceeding west chasing twilight as it were," said Captain Hillier. "Right now there is about 459,000,000 gifts delivered. If there has been enough good boys and girls, that number should hit four or five billion or so."

Santa is being tracked by NORAD's sophisticated satellites.

"The radars, which are an installation of 47 radars located along Alaska and the North of Canada. They are the first to detect Santa's movement from the North Pole," said the Captain.

NORAD will also be able to track Santa through a dear friend of his.

"On the 24 we anticipate a unique heat signature, that being Rudolph's nose, and we use that to track Santa's movements globally."
