Ringo Starr will be the honorary Santa Claus tracker for the North American Air Defense Command this Christmas Eve.
NORAD and the former Beatle will follow Santa's progress on a Web site and on a toll-free number for children. The Web site will feature some of Ringo's Christmas music.
NORAD is based at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. It's responsible for the air defense of North America.
Tracking Santa is a tradition at NORAD that started more than 45 years ago.
