Hi Tomato! Welcome to PF!

A half moon means that the sun is 6 hours away from the moon.

If the sun is directly below the moon, that means the time is half-way between sunset and moonset (or moonrise and sunrise).

So this will be seen once a month, three hours after sunset, and two weeks later, three hours before sunrise!
How is the sun under the moon?
