I’m afraid the notes are missing from this report as I was rushed for time after observing on the 8th. My shift at work was about to start and I had only given myself 10 minutes to get ready for work before rushing out the door. I do remember that I noticed two small spots, perhaps pores, just NW of AR 11093 while working on my white light observation. The following day, NOAA designated it as 11096. Faculae were notice on both the western and northeastern limbs and a hint of it around the new active region 11096.

The prominence at pa 290° reached over the surface of the limb for form a hazy filament. The base of the prominence was very bright and dense. The prominence at pa 255° was networked together by very faint thin strands that were very difficult see.
