Lunar phases

The section of FE Wiki that describes the lunar phases, along with the diagram is inaccurate. As described it implies that the Moon is always above the ecliptic at the time of full Moon and that is simply untrue. 

Further to that I'm not sure whether the diagram shown is simply intended to be schematic or realistic but there is no way that as presented all parts of the Earth will see the same phase of the Moon which is the case in reality. Also as shown in the diagram, no one in Africa or Europe would ever see a total solar eclipse!

Whoever thought up this diagram needs to think again...
