Will Comet ISON Hit The Earth?

For more information on Comet ISON:

Comets can be pretty intimidating when they appear in our night sky. One of the more pressing questions we ask when a new one is discovered is, Will it hit us?

Here's a video explaining where Comet ISON will travel through our solar system and whether inhabitants of the Earth have anything to worry about.

The prospect of a meteor shower in 2014 is appealing.
