I will see if these can be duplicated by photographing Venus
but I hold fast to my assertion that this was not Venus.
but it would appear that there is no real way of proving otherwise.

Thanks. I guess the date is incorrect because you have it set incorrectly in the camera? Or is there another reason?
By the way I can't see that data, it appears only for you. If you wanted to share any of that I suppose you'd have to copy/paste whatever you wanted to share but the only other really relevant info would be the date and time, and if that's wrong I suppose it's not too helpful without being corrected.
Even if the date is set incorrectly in the camera, if you really wanted to check whether it could be Venus or not, you could take the incorrect date/time in the camera, figure out the offset to the correct present date and time, and apply that correction factor to the EXIF date and time to get the correct date and time of the photo, if you don't remember it.
Then you could enter the corrected date and time in Stellarium, and see what the sky looks like in that direction at that time. I'm not saying it's Venus, but that is how you could make a more definitive determination about that possibility, if you wanted to, I think.

The object in these photographs appeared to me as an oddly large flickering light that changed position instantly. I did not observe the streaking that appears. If that is camera artifacts, I would like to see it duplicated. These remind me of the Stephensville photos. All I can say is that this was no planet, or star, or conventional aircraft. This was taken in Texas hill country. I have a hunch that this is some sort of electrical phenomenon generated by the quartz rich geology. I have seen similar things more than a few times. I would appreciate any thoughtful analysis of what I have captured shots of here. I promise I am not trying to propagate any sort of hoax or get any special attention.
