What can you tell about this scene?

I'm going back into the archives for this comic strip. This is a "Rose is Rose" strip from January 22nd, 2007.  I like this strip not because there is anything wrong with the astronomy (as far as I can tell), but because I can use this comic strip to ask the following questions:

What time does the couple go out for a walk?

What direction are they walking?

More generally, depending on when I use this strip in class, I could ask: What can you tell about this scene?  Then, the class can discuss things like the time of day and/or the direction the characters are facing.
