The cities of Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, DC can be observed near the east coast of the United States of America, in the upper right quadrant. Baltimore is located along the Chesapeake Bay, while Washington is further inland to the south.

A series of bays can be seen along the coast. North of the Chesapeake Bay is Delaware Bay, lighter in color. To the south of the Chesapeake are the Albemarle Sound and the Pamlico Sound (below the former), in the state of North Carolina. Greenish sediments and algal growth can be seen in both.
