Astronomer : "Astronomy"

How does a person determine when the moon is full or it's a half moon because I always see on calenders how it says full or half moon?

Kind regards
Arné

Because of the patterns it follows in the sky, it's easy to tell how the sun is going to hit the moon at a certain time of day. Here's a diagram of how it works: http://www.moonphases.info/images/moon-phases-diagram.gif
Hope this helps
