Live Santa Tracker!

Hi – this is the Santa Tracker from 2008.



To see the 2010 SANTA TRACKER please CLICK HERE





Above was the last image of Santa approaching NZ – taken at 11pm.

To all the parents – thanks for making this so successful.  Merry Christmas to you and your family at this very special time of year.  Weather Watch.

Merry Christmas from everyone at the Weather Watch Centre!!


North Pole Satellite

This image was taken directly above the North Pole!  New Zealand isn’t visible (as the equater blocks us from view!) but if this was a clock we’d be pretty much at 9 O’clock.  Skies look mainly clear over the northern hemisphere if travelling from the North Pole to New Zealand.

Below Santa will be coming down from roughly the 1 O’clock angle – where there’s a nice clear path for him.  Just a rough patch between Fiji and New Zealand where there could be some turbulence…then it’s mainly smooth flying  across New Zealand!

I have been a good boy this year for mum and dad and my little brother James. We have got a christmas tree and some lights on our house for you to see. James has been good too. I hope you remembered about the dinosaurs and the tortoise.

Have a good christmas.

Love Matthew and James

Hi Santa

We can’t wait – we are so excited. Tonight we saw one of your helpers who was giving out toys to kids.

We think you are great, travelling 1000s of miles in such bad weather to make little children like us happy.

God Bless You
