STS064-216-086 Baton Rouge, Louisiana, U.S.A. September 1994
Baton Rouge, the capital of Louisiana, is situated on the eastern bank of the Mississippi River (near center of photograph). Discernible are many streets and highways throughout the metropolitan area and Interstate Highway 10, which connects Baton Rouge and Slidell. The highly reflective surfaces along the Mississippi River are petroleum processing facilities. Narrow "long lots" radiating from the Mississippi River illustrate French influence regarding the ownership of riverfront property. The smaller Amite River is visible east of Baton Rouge. Darker, uniform areas are dense stands of vegetation, primarily forests.
