I don't think there is one. It's possible, though rare, for the moon to be full just after sunrise or just before sunset ... this happened recently in Southern California, when there was a lunar eclipse visible right about the time of sunrise. Lunar eclipses can only occur when the moon is full. (Technically, the moon wasn't "full", exactly; that had occurred a few hours before ... but it was so close that the difference was unnoticeable to the naked eye.)
