I think BlitzGirl is talking about the date formatting.
For the date of the comic, 14000 years in to the future seems .. weird. Why 14000 years? I'm not dismissing the idea, but it seems way more likely the scenes are used to illustrate or help guessing the location (just as the flora and fauna).
And can somebody explain why November 7 is the date why this should be happening? Wasn't that date a first guess when talking about an upcoming moon?
November 7th was the date that seemed to most closely match the position of the sun relative to constellations. However now we know that it's probably way in the future the exact date could be a week or so away from that I think. There's actually a ton of other as yet unexplained discrepancies, so the jury is actually still out on whether the sky actually lines up with a true date or if it's just an artistically composed unreal sky.
