  STS058-088-093 Chesapeake Bay, Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. October 1993
The gently rolling-forested terrain around the city of Baltimore is visible in this northwest-looking low oblique view. Chesapeake Bay, an estuary of the Susquehanna River and the largest estuary in the United States, can be seen covering a good portion of the bottom half of the image. A small portion of the Delmarva Peninsula is discernible at the bottom right of the image. The city of Baltimore is situated on the Patapsco River estuary, an arm of Chesapeake Bay. Baltimore is a port of entry, a commercial and industrial center, and a great seaport with extensive anchorages, docks and storage facilities. Large amounts of coal, grain, iron, steel, and copper products are exported from Baltimore's ports. It is here, during the War of 1812, that Francis Scott Key wrote the Star-Spangled Banner, the United States' National Anthem. Baltimore is also the home of John Hopkins University, a major medical and health center in the United States. The Loch Raven Reservoir is visible to the north and west of Baltimore. Liberty Lake can be seen in the upper left corner of the image.
