  STS073-741-063 Chesapeake Bay; Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. October 1995
The largest city in Maryland, Baltimore, is near the center of this north-northwest-looking, low-oblique, color-infrared view. Chesapeake Bay extends from right center (northeast) to bottom-left (south). The gently rolling, forested terrain west of Chesapeake Bay (dark red) contrasts with the flatter, mostly agricultural lands of the Delmarva Peninsula (paler shades of red, lower right), east of Chesapeake Bay. Situated on the Patapsco River estuary, Baltimore is a major shipping and receiving center for coal, grain, iron steel, and copper. Principal industries include steel mills, shipbuilding, oil refining, chemical production, and manufacture of aerospace equipment. Baltimore is the home of Johns Hopkins University, one of the leading medical and public health universities in the world. In the War of 1812 against the British, the gallant defense of Fort McHenry inspired Francis Scott Key to write the Star Spangled Banner, which became the national anthem for the United States. The ship USS Constellation, a national historic shrine, is also docked here.
