You can read about it in PhysOrg: Get set for the supermoon 3 of 3 for 2014. They say, with bold font added by us:
[T]he supermoon once again cometh this weekend to a sky near you. Yes. One. More. Time.
This weekend? Aaaargh!! It’s The End of the World! But they also say this:
Fed up with supermoon-mania? The September Full Moon also has a more pedestrian name: The Harvest Moon. Actually, this is the Full Moon that falls nearest to the September Equinox, marking the start of the astronomical season of Fall in the northern hemisphere and Spring in the southern. … So, why is it known as the Harvest Moon? Well, in the age before artificial lighting (and artificial light pollution) the rising of the Full Moon as the Sun sets allowed for a few hours of extra illumination to bring in crops.
They’re trying to avoid panic again. But they can’t! Get this:
And to top it off, the Moon occults Uranus just two days after Full on September 11th as seen from northeastern North America, Greenland, Iceland and northern Scandinavia.
Aaaargh!! Not only a Supermoon, but an occultation of Uranus. Do you realize what it means to have the Moon lined up with Uranus? Of all the planets … Uranus! We’re being mooned by the Moon!
Here’s one more excerpt:
We’re in a cycle of occultations of Uranus by the Moon from late 2014 through 2015, and this will set the ice giant up for a spectacular close pass, and a rare occultation of the planet for a remote region in the Arctic during the October 8th total lunar eclipse.
We don’t know what others may think, but there has never been such a confluence of celestial signs. We have no doubt that The End Is Nigh! Therefore, we bid you farewell and close with this:
