In hour one of Here & Now's Jan. 30, 2018 full broadcast, we preview President Trump's first State of the Union address with NPR's Kelsey Snell. Also, President Trump's decision to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem "has made getting negotiations much more difficult" between Israelis and Palestinians, according to former Democratic Sen. George Mitchell, who was special envoy for Middle East peace under President Obama. And on Wednesday morning, there will be combination of three celestial events — a supermoon, blue moon and total lunar eclipse, known as a blood moon — for the first time since 1982. Kelly Beatty of Sky & Telescope magazine tells us about when and where to get the best view. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
