One of the Coast Guard's jobs in the Chesapeake Bay is setting navigation buoys. And every June since 1972, this one, painted in stars and stripes, is set just north of the Francis Scott Key bridge.
It is not used for navigation but is purely a ceremonial buoy that marks an important spot for American history.
That history is Francis Scott Key's writing of the Star-Spangled Banner during the War of 1812. He witnessed the British bombardment of Fort McHenry and the buoy is placed at the approximate spot where he wrote those words.
The buoy will remain in place until fall when it will be removed and placed into storage until next June.
