    Is Rudolph s nose red because the re-entry speed is too high and the angle too steep that his nose is getting hot, or is it too much Jack Daniel s?? Anthony B.

      > Yep I surely do Brenda... check out http://www.noradsanta.org/ North
      America Radar Air Defence System, usually they catche Santa on Radar and
      track him during his flight. I tried catching glimpse of St.Nick last year
      but he's a quick little Bug or I mean Elf. Pheeeew!!!! You almost have to
      anticipate his arrival 10 minutes or 4 States or Provinces ahead of time. Or
      all you're going to see is a contrail of cookie crumbs. And if you get
      walloped by some thing white and liquidee? That ain't what you think it is,
      pigeons usually roost at night, rather it is Milk from the last place he
      visited. He usually laughs about it too... ho ho ho that sort of thing.

      or two from him, have you noticed he uses a red light to see by rather than
      a white light? nudge nudge wink wink!

      > At anyrate enjoy! See if you can catch him!

        No Tony! He's an amateur astronomer in his own right, he's just fortunate enough to have his red light always handy and at the ready! I mean really how many astronomers have you seen with a flash light sticking out of their mouths! Rudolf Rules Dude!

        Gotta run here, 5 am comes early.

        Clear Skies!

        Can t be red because of atmospheric re-entry....Rudolph and group are on a 24-hour high speed, low level mission, rarely climbing above 10,000 feet AGL.

          Level for you non-pilots).
          So it must be red due to the ethyl alcohol.
