No, that is the bright star Antares. The "ring" is a CCD camera artefact caused by electrons from oversaturated pixels leaking into adjacent pixels.

use a planetarium program to see where the sun is amd what the surrounding stars are

Stellarium is a good choice

Was it a Shakespeare line that said?

" the rumours of my early demise have been greatly exaggerated"

haha .... ISON still seems to be reasonably intact .... will be interesting to see how it looks when over the next week or so it gets picked up visually
