Impossible Moon Phases

The question is: How do we see a nearly full moon during the day, or a crescent moon during the night.

Here’s the problem

This is what we are told is happening

I have seen many attempted explanations to this simple question. None seems to adequately tackle the fact that we see these moon phases, gibbous during the day, or crescent moons during the night, all the time.

These are some of the visual attempts to defend the crumbling heliocentric spinning ball model:

None of which seem to explain the day / night aspect of this problem, ie, when a crescent moon is showing, you should be on the daylight side (facing the sun) When the moon is nearly fully illuminated, then we should be on the dark side of earth (away from the sun).

This is probably the best and most convincing explanation, but bare in mind my photo (below) was taken at 3.30pm

This should not be visible at night, but we all know it is.

These are pictures myself and friends have taken:

Here’s how they try to explain it in mainstream heliocentric ‘science’ [Note how a simple diagram of the configuration is not offered, I wonder why]

The comments, as always, have the last laugh…

Four keys to understanding moon phases

So I’m asking for a simple, three circle diagram, to explain how these impossible phases are possible on the spinning ball model

Should be easy….

    Did you understood how this happens? As i have strong feeling that heliocentric model failed in the explanation of this. I am not able to find satisfying answer for even normal full moon. How does normal full moon in totality is possible, where is moon is lit from edge to edge? Did you know this? Please help me understand this.
