I have noticed this some time ago as well. Do you know, is this (and the overly-bright-moon-if-atmosphere-on, that's technically the same issue) new with 0.13.0/Qt5/shaders, or even later?

Sorry, I did not track changes some time, but I remember that 0.12.x did not have such bug.
Perhaps too bright (distorted) moon over daylight is the result of the same clipping by RGB 255/255/255 level. But I'm a newcomer with shaders, so can't help too much. I have to study the subject first.

r9175 reduces the excessive brightness when zooming in. It looks very similar to now.
