You better watch out...Santa Claus is coming tonight.
And you can track his progress as he makes his travels all over the world thanks to the North American Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado.
 They have the technology to follow Santa and his reindeer as they deliver holiday cheer all night.
Cick here to follow Santa's journey
You can watch as NORAD streams videos, captured by "Santa Cams," from numerous cities along Santa's journey.
 The program began Dec. 24, 1955, when a child dialed a phone number that was misprinted in a newspaper advertisement and reached the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
The commander at Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station who answered the phone that night gave the youngster the information requested: Santa's whereabouts. This began the tradition of tracking Santa, a tradition that was carried on by NORAD when it was formed in 1958.
