Bright star looking light with red ring which is only seen with zoom

I’m a 47yr old Mother of two adult daughters. I took my dogs out for their nightly walk. Noticed a nice full moon, (I was viewing East of me) and saw “airplane” lights down to the left side of the moon,…took a double look to watch it fly in, but it didn’t move any closer. There wasn’t any sound either so I thought it must be an unusually bright North Star night. But it seemed too bright to be the North Star so I continued to look harder at it.

I wasn’t sure if I was seeing one or two lights at that point. Although my camera isn’t the best, I figured I’d try to get a picture “just in case” it really was a UFO. Tried to get it on my cell phone but I’m not sure if I captured it. Then I got three pictures on my still camera. Came in the house and uploaded only to see squiggle lights. I had it on 10x zoom without a steady hand. I ran and grabbed my tripod and took more pictures using the 2 second delay to avoid shake. Assuming this camera wouldn’t have the ability to capture anything anyway, doubled with the fact that mosquitoes were feasting upon me, I couldn’t stay out there. Instead I amused myself by uploading the pictures anyway. Nothing but blur until the last two shots. When I zoom in on the picture using the picture viewer zoom, I wasn’t really expecting to see anything different but there appears to be a difference..? This time there is a red ring on the light. I’m wondering if someone else could use a better zoom to check it. not that it would likely matter anyway, but I’m following through. It is now 12:14 am and I’m going to go see if it is still there.

Yes, it is still there so it must be the North Star and some optical illusion occurred on the picture? Should I forward you the picture anyway?
