There was no evidence of active area 897 today. I couldn't see any spots and there wasn't even any evidence of any other kind of markings. It would appear that it's now totally faded from my view.

Active area 898 had just the main spot visible. It still looked very crisp and clear with the umbra still looking very dark and the penumbra still looking very well defined and quite broad.
