Quite a cloudy afternoon but during an extended gap I took the Solarscope out to do a quick sunspot count.

Sun

From: 2006-09-05 13:15 UT
To: 2006-09-05 13:20 UT

I would see a single large spot that appeared to have recently come around the limb of the Sun. Even though it was highly foreshortened I could see a good hint of penumbra.

The spot I could see was part of active area 908 (which, if I'm reading things correctly, is actually the return of active area 904).
