Scientists are baffled by an unusual bright spot about the size of West Virginia on Saturn's big moon, Titan. The Cassini spacecraft captured an image of the 300-mile blotch during a flyby of Titan this year. "At first glance, I thought the feature looked strange, almost out of place," Robert Brown, a member of the Cassini project, said Wednesday. Scientists believe the spot could have formed recently as a result of an asteroid impact, a landslide or a volcanic eruption.

Several witnesses reported seeing one or two teen-agers running from the structure shortly before flames became visible, Brown said.

Two reputed members of the Rollin' 60s Crips were sent to prison Monday for helping make Los Angeles the bank robbery capital of the world--a feat the FBI says they accomplished by recruiting schoolchildren, arming them with high-powered assault rifles and aiding their getaways with brazen carjackings. Masterminding the scheme was Robert Sheldon Brown, who, though just 23, has been implicated in 175 bank heists over the last four years, more than anyone in U.S. history.

As the end credits on "Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit" roll to a close, the producers extend their thanks to Iris Stevenson, whose story, they note, provided the inspiration for the film. On the face of it, however, Stevenson bears little resemblance to the lounge-singer-turned-nun-impersonator played by Whoopi Goldberg. Nor does the movie, which opens in Los Angeles on Friday, closely parallel Stevenson's life.
