The good thing is that this can be confirmed in a few more newpix when Mars should appear.
The reason is Venus and the Sun are a certain distance apart in the sky AND in that particular location approximately every 8 years. It is a few hours off, so the Sun gradually moves with the cycle. This particular cycle has the Sun in the right place and also no other planets or the Moon in view so far.
Also, because the seasons cycle around with the precession, it would be roughly equivalent to 8th November, or late Autumn in the northern hemisphere even though it is late April
One piece of information that hasn't been used (as far as I have seen) is comparison of the stars with the solar latitude. The sun's track across the sky is basically a line of constant declination, but this declination will change with the season and with precession. Here's the sun's track (38.5° from vertical, in the images) overlaid on one of the star images:
For dates ~15000AD this looks like a declination of about +10° (changing slightly with precession). Your 14960/05/07 has the sun at +17°, and 13996/04/23 has it at +13°; both are a little large. 13291/04/14 has it at 9° 46' which is pretty close to what I see. (On that date Jupiter is high in the sky and would be appearing in a few frames.)
I think we should also see Fomalhaut in the lower left soon, and Altair might make an appearance in the upper right as well; these have high proper motions as well.
