Reasonably clear day, little cloud to get in the way of viewing the Sun. This was a relatively late observation due to the fact that I'd not had a chance to observe earlier in the day.

With the Solarscope I could see that area 865 had developed even more. I could count 8 spots in the group. The penumbra of the main spot had developed some more over yesterday.

The main spot in area 866 had now developed a visible penumbra and I could also see a second spot associated with it. Since making that observation I've found out that the second spot is actually part of a new active area (area 867).

Unfortunately I didn't have the time to make a sketch.

Using eclipse shades I was able to see the main spot in area 865 with the naked eye.
