Notes:

Very windy and quite a cloudy day. Despite the conditions not being ideal I decided to do a quick sunspot count with the Solarscope.

Sun

From: 2006-04-13 12:55 UT
To: 2006-04-13 13:00 UT

With the Solarscope I counted five active areas, each with a single spot visible. I think, had the conditions been ideal, I might have been able to see more detail but the Solarscope was being blown around a lot and cloud kept blowing across the face of the Sun.

The active areas seen were: 869, 870, 871, 872 and 873.
