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

Thanks..
But how do you come to know that it was Antares and no one else?

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

Stellarium is a good choice
