Mostly cloudy day with very few gaps in the cloud. What gaps there are tend to be quite hazy. During a brief gap I took the Solarscope out to do a quick sunspot count.

Right away, very close to the limb of the Sun, I could see 5 spots in active area 892. The group appeared to be quite mature based on the apparent size (especially taking into account the fact that the view will have been very foreshortened). I could also see some penumbra around one of the spots.

If the weather had been better and I could have been guaranteed a longer clear spell I would have done a sketch of it.
