Fly up the Chesapeake Bay to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

This scene shows Landsat Thematic Mapper data from the shortwave infrared (TM band 5), infrared (TM band 4), and visible green (TM band 2) channels of the Chesapeake Bay. The Patuxent River can be seen running parallel to the Bay on the left, while the Choptank River enters the Bay on the right. Annapolis and Kent Island (flat look-down image) is from the 2nd of October, 1997, all other images are from 16 November, 1996. The change in color between these dates (predominately green in October, red in November) result from seasonal changes in vegetation.
