The image of the Sun was very unsteady, probably the worst I've ever seen it. Despite this I could easily make out new active area 901. The area contained three spots. The biggest appeared elongated with a hint of a penumbra, the second appeared as dark as the biggest but was much smaller, the third appeared a little smaller than the second and somewhat fainter.
