Sunspot 1130

Saturday, Nov. 27 was clear and a beautiful day for observing.  I set up the ETX-90 to do a little direct observation.  Unfortunately, not a spot in sight.  I note that sunspot 1130, currently near the center of the sun's disk, is developing rapidly and is becoming quite an active area.  Unfortunately there is a solid overcast today, with rain and thunderstorms expected tonight.  However, it looks as if the sun might make an appearance tomorrow and I'll take a stab at imaging 1130 if I can see it.
