Santa Practice Runs – Christmas ISS Passes

Santas ISS Passes – Watch Santa (The International Space Station) on his Practice Runs This Christmas.

Santas ISS: For the past few years, we’ve had some great festive fun in the UK with (Santa) International Space Station passes before Christmas.

As a result, many parents, grandparents and guardians have told their little ones that the ISS is actually Santa on his practice runs.  On the other hand, this sounds silly to some, but many small children with playful adults found it magical and really thought they could see Santa!

Will your children see Santa on his practice runs this year?  Perhaps they are too old now and know it’s the Space Station.  Regardless, the ISS is an amazing sight to behold and we can use it to spread some extra magic and inspire them to find out more about Space this Christmas.   Read on to find out more.
