Active area 897 was just visible but appears to have faded even more. I could just make out 4 very faint spots. By the looks of things I won't be able to see any evidence of it in the Solarscope within the next day or so.

Active area 898 still looked very strong. The main spot still looked very crisp and well defined. The umbra still looked very dark and the penumbra was well defined and appeared at least as "wide" as the diameter of the umbra.
