Very cloudy day, overcast for most of it. Late on in the afternoon there was a brief break in the cloud so I headed out with a pair of eclipse shades to see if I could see the large sunspots that are currently part of active area 904.

Conditions were pretty terrible (hence the reason I didn't get the Solarscope out to do a sunspot count). Although I did have a short break in the clouds the sky that was clear was still very hazy. Despite this, using a pair of eclipse shades, I could just make out the biggest sunspot associated with active area 904. This is the first naked-eye sunspot I've seen for some time.
