Following comet ISON into The Sun. Comet ISON "C 2012 S1".
This is what the Narrator says in the publicly released NASA video. Surely a public announcement video would of had to pass through NASA Comet ISON media quality approval for release to the public domain. With the Sun's polar flip and Ison closing in on the sun when the sun is at its lowest magnet output and possibly it being at ZERO magnetic force then what would this do to the trajectory taking ALL factors into consideration? The Suns magnetic field is what gives us Solar activity. The effects of solar activity on Earth include auroras at moderate to high latitudes and the disruption of radio communications and electric power. Solar activity is thought to have played a large role in the formation and evolution of the Solar System. Solar activity changes the structure of Earth's outer atmosphere. With a zero magnetic field then what happens?

The potential "comet of the century" Comet ISON could hit the Sun.
Will Comet ISON shift into brilliance or mediocrity. You can watch a video about Comet ISON's current brightness here on djorbitek YouTube Channel.
Comet ISON passes Mars.
Head of NASA's Comet ISON Observing Campaign, said in a statement. "It is invisible to the naked eye, but within reach of backyard telescopes. [Photos of Comet ISON]

Composed of ice and dust, comets are often compared to dusty snowballs as they travel through the solar system. Almost all comets spend the majority of their lives in the Oort Cloud, a icy region beyond the reaches of Pluto.

Discovered in September 2012 by Russian astronomers Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok, ISON will travel within 680,000 miles (1.1 million kilometers) above the sun's surface on Nov. 28 but with the latest public announcement video then there lays some confusion with, will comet ISON hit the Sun or the Earth. The question on everyone's mind is how it will respond.
Because this is ISON's first visit to the inner solar system, the results of the interaction are still up for grabs. Comets that have shown signs of a promising show have fizzled out in the past.
ISON appears unlikely to survive journey to the sun.
Comet ISON should become exceptionally bright, at least rivaling the planet Venus in the hours preceding its closest approach to the sun.
The NASA graphics depicts the brightness of Comet ISON in September 2013. The comet is expected to brighten considerably as it nears the sun in late November.
At the moment ISON is dimmer than some have anticipated, shining about as brightly as distant Pluto.
As ISON moves toward the sun, NASA's STEREO satellite and the NASA/ESA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory will have their lenses trained on ISON. Both are equipped with coronagraphs to block the bright light from the sun, capturing ISON at its brightest.
