STS058-088-094 Chesapeake Bay, Susquehanna River, Maryland, U.S.A. October 1993
The Susquehanna River enters the scene at the top center of the image and flows generally southeastward to Chesapeake Bay in this northwest-looking low-oblique view. Part of the Delmarva Peninsula covers the bottom fourth of the image. The Susquehanna River enters Chesapeake Bay near Havre de Grace, Maryland (light area west of the junction). Chesapeake Bay is the drowned lower course of the river. The area just to the southwest of the Susquehanna River entering the bay, is the Aberdeen Proving Ground and the Edgewood Arsenal. The northern portions of the city of Baltimore are visible along the left edge of the image midway between the center left and bottom left. The gently-rolling terrain inland from the bay gives way to the more hilly terrain of the eastern Appalachians in the upper third of the image.
