I still want to know how the sun can illuminate the opposite side of the moon, on mornings when both are visible.

Wouldn't the sun have to be between the moon and earth, if the Moonlight is indeed a reflection of the Sunlight?

No idea what you are asking. Are you saying you don't think the moon caused the eclipse?

That is not an issue. The daylight side of the Earth can easily see the lit side of the Moon. All you need to do is picture in you r head what the Earth-Moon-Sun orientation looks like when the Moon is visible during the day (such as the image I made below).

However, when the moon is visible at mid-day, it will not be much bigger or smaller than a half-moon. A gibbous moon or very thin crescent will only be see in the daytime morning or daytime evening.





EDIT TO ADD:

Here is another little thought experiment you can do:

looks like one of the cameras was just rotated slightly.

You also have field rotation to deal with.
