Believe it or not, the moon is half as bright as a full moon about 2.4 days before and after a full moon. Even though about 95 percent of the moon is illuminated at this time, and to most casual observers it might still look like a “full” moon, its brightness is roughly 0.7 magnitudes less than at full phase, making it appear one-half as bright.
