Region 2894 is now the only active region in white light. It has some extra spots, one being medium and two are tiny. Yesterday's 3 spots are still surrounded by a common umbra, but two of those have become darker and with a casual glance, they look like they are only one spot.

There has been some shape changing in Region 2894. It now consists of two medium, equal sized spots, which are surrounded by a common umbra. The small spots, which were nearby, have all disappeared.

Region 2894 is much the same as yesterday, except it is closer to the Western Limb.

There are two new regions in the East with one spot each. Region 2896 has the larger spot, the other region has yet to be named on Space Weather.

Faculae are now visible in Region 2894 as it approaches the Sun's Western Limb.

Region 2896 has one large spot, which when observed at 73x with a solar filter, the spot appears to be two spots close together.

Yesterday's new Region has been designated 2897 and features just the one spot.

Whoooo............
There's a couple of very tight and crisp large filaments (and a neat filaprom) easily visible at the moment - in both CaK (most unusual) and H alpha.

Regions 2896 & 2897 have one large spot each, which are located far from the Sun's limb.

Both spots look smaller and fainter than yesterday.

Both spots have continued to shrink and be more difficult to see.

There are just two small spots visible today. I only saw with difficulty, the remnants of Regions 2896 & 2897 when I persisted with my observations in direct, filtered light.

New Region 2898 has 10 or more small/tiny spots in two semicircular lines.

There are two new regions today. Region 2900, which consists of 3 or 4 very close spots, is not far from the Region mentioned yesterday. I glimpsed some faculae near the limb, but no sunspots. However, I see this has been named as Region 2899.

Region 2998 has lost a few spots, but the remaining 5 or 6 spots seemed to have darkened and become a little larger.

Both Region 2900 & 2898 look more developed than yda, but appear remarkably similar to each other. They both have a well developed spot, with a nearby spot on the end of a hook-shaped chain of many small/tiny spots.

Region 2899 still only has faculae, which is more easily seen today.

November 29th , 8.00am.

New Region 2901 with one small spot has appeared near the Sun’s Eastern Limb.

Regions 2898 & 2900 continue to show significant changes every day, as they begin their approach to the Sun’s Western Limb.

Today, my viewing circumstances were a bit on the weird side. When a small break in the clouds occurred, it was still raining. Nevertheless, I used my 80mm scope in the shelter of a carport and was still able to see detail, even though I was observing through a sun-shower.

Four Regions with spots are visible today.

A new spot has appeared towards the center of the solar disc and this has yet to be named on ‘Space Weather.’

Yesterday’s new Region 2901 continues to feature only one spot. Regions 2898 and 2900 have one large spot and several smaller spots. Region 2900 is closest to the Sun’s Western Limb.

Yesterday’s new Region (still un-named on Space Weather) has developed into 2 medium sized spots, accompanied by a few small spots.

Region 2898 & 2900 seem to be merging as they approach the Western Limb. There are 3 large spots, some small/tiny spots and a minor amount of faculae.

The one, small spot in Region 2901 looks fainter today and looks to be at risk of disappearing.

Region 2902 (finally named) consists of at least 8 spots (4 medium, in two pairs and four small) and is located towards the center of the Solar disc.

Region 2900 is very near the Western Limb and Region 2898 appears to be part of the same region because of distortion affects near the edge of the Sun's globe. There is now an abundant amount of faculae nearby.

That is all I saw, but the Space Weather SDO image shows additional Regions 2901 & 2903, each with one faint, small spot.
