  STS068-202-098 Southeast Coast, Delaware, U.S.A. October 1994
The small sand spit seen here near the center of this color infrared image is Cape Henlopen. This feature is located along the southwest side of the entrance to Delaware Bay (Cape May Point-NJ-is the small tip of land northeast of Cape Henlopen). Several swampy, wetland areas are visible along the Delaware coast: both on the Atlantic Ocean facing shore (Rehoboth and Indian River Bays) and along the south side of Delaware Bay immediately northwest of Cape Henlopen. The color infrared image helps to accentuate the predominately agricultural landscape (angular field patterns). The deeper reds indicate clusters of forested lands. A short section of U. S. Highway 113 (linear, light colored line) is visible near the upper left corner of the image.
