2 sunspot groups near each other, so looks like one gigantic. I was impressed:
Sun 1168, 1169

Simas,

Well done white light observation and rendering of these active regions (and some faculae). I see from your sketch that the other large active region, AR1158, has disappeared around the solar limb.
