In the second quarter.
first quarter of the moon is second phase of the moon. it means that the shape of the moon is growing to the waxing gibbous.
About a second and a quarter.
When you see a 'half moon,' it is a first quarter moon. A full moon is actually the second quarter, and when the shadow passes to just the other half, it is a third quarter. A 'fourth quarter' would be completely behind the shadow of the earth, and mostly invisible.
It goes:-New MoonFirst quarterFull MoonSecond QuarterNo Moon/New Moon
With the first quarter moon, the Moon is "waxing", which means getting larger. with the third quarter moon, the Moon is "waning", which means getting smaller. In each case, the Moon is half lit ---- first quarter moon is when it is increasing and the third quarter moon is decreasing

Quarter moon, half moon, 3 quarter moon, full moon, no moon
Both the 1st Quarter moon and the 3rd (last) Quarter moon can be referred to as the "half moon" since we see half of the sunlit side of the moon.
A quarter moon is smaller than a gibbous moon.
The first quarter moon is on the left side of the moon.

A half moon and quarter moon shouldn't look the same. When you refer to a half moon, you'll be able to see about 50% of the moon, causing it to look like a larger crescent. If you're seeing a quarter moon, it will look like a smaller crescent that is about 25% of the moon. You usually see a half moon at the first or third quarter point of the Moon's orbit around Earth. So a half moon can be called a first quarter moon or a third quarter moon, and this can lead to the confusion between a half moon looking like a quarter moon.
