  STS068-264-006 Delaware And Upper Chesapeake Bays, Maryland, U.S.A. October 1994
Delaware and upper Chesapeake Bays can be seen in this southwest-looking, low-oblique view. The Susquehanna River enters the scene near right of center (northwest) and flows into Chesapeake Bay (center of the image). The sediment-laden Delaware River enters the scene at the bottom center of the image and flows past Wilmington, Delaware (western shore). The river then turns southeastward into Delaware Bay, an estuary 52 miles (84 km) long, located between the states of New Jersey (bottom left) and Delaware (left center). The Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, part of the Intracoastal Waterway, which connects the Delaware River with the Chesapeake Bay, is barely discernible to the south of Wilmington. Wilmington is a port of entry handling considerable domestic and foreign shipping. The city has vast shipyards and is a large chemical industrial center. Towards the top of the image is the city of Baltimore.
