Why does the half moon and quarter moon look the same?

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.
