There was a bright moon in the sky. If it weren't for the fog, the streets would have looked incredibly [...].

I can't think of the right adjetive (aside of clear).

Any other suggestions?

    I don't think there is such a word. More importantly, though, that's a highly unnatural way of describing the scenery to begin with. If it's foggy, there isn't a bright moon in the sky, 'cause a bright moon in the sky means that the moon is bright when you look at it from earth. When there's a fog, you can't see the moon at all. I'd say something like, “High above, the moon shone out, but the streets of the city where cloaked in a thick fog so you couldn't see ten feet ahead of you on the ground”—that's a more natural way of looking at things.

    Please note that he is looking for a VERB ... should the OP not read "adjective" ? Why has nobody picked that up? Nov 13, 2013 at 10:35
  • @NamSandStorm Oh, you're right. Fixed.

Sharp might be the word you are looking for. You might also omit incredibly and use clearly outlined.
