/sigh...Not even close to a full moon. I'm thinking an article intended to make conspiracy theorists look foolish.

It's a "Super new Moon", not a "Super Full Moon".
But the article cited by the OP says otherwise.
(color emphasis mine)
CONSPIRACY theorists are stocking up on food supplies amid fears the world could end from TOMORROW when a total eclipse of the sun, super new moon and staggeringly close asteroid pass of earth are set to happen around the globe.
UPDATE MARCH 7, 2016. Asteroid 2013 TX68 safely passed by Earth on Monday morning.
According to the Minor Planet Center, the space rock’s closest approach occurred on March 7 at 13:42 UTC (8:42 ET) at a distance of 2,542,960 miles (4,092,497 km) from Earth, just a bit closer than the nominal 3 million miles previously estimated.
The space rock approached our planet a few hours earlier than expected. The previous estimate indicated asteroid 2013 TX68 was due to pass by Earth around March 7 at 7:06 pm ET (March 8 at 00:06 UTC).
