Another slightly breezy day with lots of broken cloud but with the occasional period where the Sun could be seen (very similar to yesterday). Took the Solarscope outside to do a quick sunspot count.

Sun

From: 2006-04-28 13:47 UT
To: 2006-04-28 13:53 UT

With the Solarscope I could still see active areas 875 and 876. Between them I counted 17 sunspots (two more than yesterday's observation).

Neither area seemed to have changed that much and the descriptions stay pretty much the same as yesterday.

Using eclipse shades I was able to see the main spot in area 875, as a small black dot, with the naked eye.
