As someone who studied astronomy for my doctorate, I'm generally happy when people show some interest in astronomical phenomena. But honestly, I am so over this ridiculous "supermoon" media hype that we now get several times a year. It doesn't have any great significance and the moon barely looks any different to any other full moon. It'd be nicer if people just appreciated seeing the moon any time it's visible in the sky.
