There are a variety of factors that affect the moon’s brightness, including its phase, reflectability, and atmospheric extinction. The following web site gives a photographer’s description of where the moon is brightest based on these factors: http://home.earthlink.net/~kitathome/LunarLight/moonlight_gallery/technique/moonbright.htm
There is really not one clear answer, as it differs based on the position of the moon, etc. However, what is interesting is the fact that the moon is covered with small, reflect able material that means the moon is brightest when you, the sun, and the moon are encased within a small angle.
