ref. The Full Moon Atlas and Observing the Moon

During a full moon, rays of sunlight are hitting the visible portion of the moon perpendicular to the surface. As a result there is much less surface detail visible during a full moon than during other phases (such as the quarter and crescent phases) when sunlight hits the Moon at a much shallower angle.

The Moon is the sole natural satellite of the Earth. Like all the planets and satellites in the Solar System, the Moon shines by reflected sunlight. It revolves around the Earth from west to east at a distance of about 384,400 km. With a diameter of 3,476 km, the Moon is less than one-third the size of the Earth, is only 1/81 as massive as the Earth and has a density of roughly 3.34 g/cm3, compared to 5.52 g/cm3 for the Earth.
