For the past twelve days, Google Earth has been teasing us with toys hidden all over the planet, but since today is Christmas Eve, Santa has actually taken flight!
A bit ago I watched him work his way through Australia and as I type this he's making his stops in Papua New Guinea. The satellite imagery is amazingly sharp. It's a great way to see the world from the comfort of your own home.
You can track Santa, too. You have to load Google Earth (it's free) and then load the Santa Tracker KML file. Easy to follow directions are available on the website.
