Google's Santa Tracker Shows Same Position as NORAD Tracker

[UPDATE Christmas Day: Santa finished his deliveries, so this tracker's job is over. But, you can read this article and see a map of his approximate route.]

Santa Tracker for Christmas in 3D in Google EarthGoogle has a Santa Tracker for Google Earth which automatically updates every 20 seconds with Santa's current position. Make sure you have the latest version of Google Earth 4 installed (download here). You will see Santa, his sleigh, and reindeer (including Rudolf!) over the current city/country he is visiting. For verification, you can see that his position as seen in Google Earth is accurately synchronized with the NORAD Santa Tracker as well.

    This was very disappointing. When it reached the UK, it spent 10 minutes visiting various spots in London, then danced across the Scottish border. It missed all the large UK cities, and most of the regions.

    Instead of visiting 12 places in London, it should have visited 12 regions of the UK.

    On NORAD's santa tracker, the put Newberb, Oregon where Coffeyville, Kansas is roughly. Think southeast Kansas if you go looking for it. I wonder if anybody else noticed. They also said Oregon was in the wrong time zone it looks like. Oh well, minor catch.
