If you are on the moon at the time of "New Moon", and you are facing the earth, you see a "Full Earth". If you stay up there a while, and call your partner on earth every day, and you describe to each other what you're seeing, you'll notice something very interesting: The part of the moon that HE sees, plus the part of the earth that YOU see, always adds up to a complete circle of illumination. Each of you sees the part of the circle that the other one is missing.
