    a full moon

    Hi there.

    Is it Okay to say, "today's moon is fuller than yesterday's"?

    Any better suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: a full moon

    Some astronomical purists might object to 'today's moon' [and even, maybe, to 'is']; they would probably prefer 'The moon today seems fuller than yesterday'. But most people would regard 'today's moon is fuller than yesterday's' as perfectly acceptable.
