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.
