BLT, the 'supermoon' is what you are seeing now. All it means is that the moon is at it's closest to the Earth, so it looks a bit bigger than usual (about 7 percent bigger.) 'Blood Moon' refers to the appearence duriing the eclipse as the only light cast on the Moon will be that bent by our atmosphere. If the parts of the atmosphere doing that are dusty or otherwise polluted, the blue part of the light from the Sun will be scattered and the Moon will turn red.
If you haven't guessed I am an astronomer but hope what I say in my posts makes some sense!
