This false colour PROBA-V image of late September shows us the Potomac river on the border of the states of Maryland and Virginia. The river dissects the capital of the United States (in grey) in the north of the image, before meandering towards Chesapeake Bay, further to the southeast. Dulles International airport (west of the city) and Andrews Air Force Base (east) stand out in bright cyan.
