A new report prepared by the Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS) circulating in the Kremlin today states that Comet C/2012 S1 has made a number of “unexplained orbital adjustments” around the planet Mars seemingly to better align itself with the Red planets strange moon Phobos.
he reason for this assessment, ROSCOSMOS experts state, are the “unexplained orbital adjustments” Comet ISON has apparently made on its approach to Mars and were verified by American amateur astronomer Bruce Gary on 12 August when he became the first to see Comet ISON again after its sojourn behind the sun during June, July and part of August.
Alan MacRobert at Skyandtelescope.com said about Gray’s 12 August discovery: “Comet ISON is about two magnitudes (six times) fainter than it should be compared to the calculations that first led astronomers to predict it would become a grand naked-eye sight before dawn in early December.”

But wouldn't the creditable sources be denying this left and right?
I'm not saying a fully believe this either...I'm just it sounds interesting and thought I would bring it to ATS.
I'm sorry, but Ison is nowhere close to 'approaching Mars' at present. The source quoted also appears to conflate Ison with the long-disproved idea that the Martian moon Phobos is some kind of artificial satellite, and to be based on a Russian blog very far removed from the Kremlin.
Comet Ison has looked pretty weird on some imagery obtained from the Hubble telescope, but this is down to the way the images were obtained rather than Ison being an alien spacecraft.
