I don't think people understand the term supermoon - unless its recently changed, its not astronomical, but astrological.

Mormon church issues statement about lunar eclipse apocalpyse

Leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints took the rare step of issuing a statement cautioning the Mormon faithful not to get carried away with visions of the apocalypse.

SALT LAKE CITY — A rare confluence of a lunar eclipse and a supermoon set to happen this weekend has prompted such widespread fear of an impending apocalypse that the Mormon Church was compelled to issue a statement cautioning the faithful to not get caught up in speculation about a major calamity.

Sunday night's "blood moon" and recent natural disasters and political unrest around the world have led to a rise in sales at emergency-preparedness retailers. Apocalyptic statements by a Mormon author have only heightened fears among a small number of Mormon followers about the looming end of time. The eclipse will give the moon a red tint and make it look larger than usual. It won't happen again for 18 years.

It's unclear how many Latter-day Saints buy the theory, but Mormon leaders were worried enough that they took the rare step this week of issuing a public statement cautioning the faithful not to get carried away with visions of the apocalypse.

Picked up 'Four blood moons' by John Hagg in a local charity shop for 50c a while back, the book in itself is trash but there does seem to be some historic references to people using it as a reference point for change, or the encouragement or it.

The term supermoon only really seems to be about since the 80's - interesting to see them so quickly combined in the last few years

Looking forward to this lunar eclipse. Hopefully it won't be clouded out.

I think it is being used astronomically, to refer to the fact that the moon will also close to the Earth.

Haven't stayed out to watch the terra/lunar perigee-syzygy in years. I don't feel the greatest but I've the telescope set up, a flask of hot tea and a really awesomely warm jumper under my coat.

Looks as if its going to be a perfect night for the lunar eclipse. I've got a great clear view of the moon at the moment lets hope it stays that way for the rest of the night.
