Concerning the shapes of the moon.

I guess i missed this in class, but,
If the shape of the moon depends on the shadow cast upon it
By the earth, and the earth is a sphere,
How Can there be a HALF MOON. A vertical straight line.?

You have too much time on your hands. Got me going, so I had to look it up. Explanation makes sense except the waning cycle. Light is coming from the right, so the other side should be dark. Something isn't right about this.

Just revisited this link and it is correct, if you take time to really look at it.
