The novel Man of Steel: The Early Years: Junior Novel reveals that Lana was born several months after Clark's arrival.

Kal is typically found on June 18th, suggesting he landed on June 18, 1980. This matches the fact that Superman's date of birth is typically February 29th, a date which only occurs every 4 years, and occurred in 1980. Therefore, Kal was born on February 29, 1980, and landed on June 18, 1980, then December 2013 is 33 years later. This is supported when Zod says that they prepared "for 33 years".

In Wonder Woman 1984: The Junior Novel it's confirmed that July 2nd, a Monday, is her first day of work in her second week at the museum. This means her first day, which was the day of the raid, must have been the week before. Since a group of students are also at the museum for an afterschool detention program, it was very likely Friday of that week.
