Active area 969 still visible with one spot. Now looking very small and very faint. Took a short while to even spot it.

Active area 969 still visible but, unlike yesterday, I could only see a single umbra. I guess this either means that the two spots I saw yesterday had merged or that today's seeing wasn't so good. The umbra did appear to be somewhat elongated.
