STS068-201-074 Williamsport Area, Pennsylvania October 1994
The Susquehanna River makes a 90-degree turn to the south just to the east of Williamsport, world famous for it's annual Little League Baseball World Series. Williamsport can be identified as the lighter colored area where US Highway 15 is visible as a thin, white line at the bottom of this color infrared image. Bald Eagle Mountain and North White Deer Ridge are the two main northeast-southwest trending mountain ridges south of Williamsport. A small section of Interstate Highway 80, an east-west corridor that crosses the entire state, can be identified as the long, thin white line that extends through one of the many valleys of the Appalachian Mountains (right of center). The darker, uniform terrain (lower left corner) is Tiadaghton State Forest. The densely wooded area south of Williamsport is considered to be part of the Bald Eagle State Forest (deep red). A large segment of the flatter landscape is used for agricultural purposes.
