A few Seconds of Lunar Eclipse

I wasn't really expecting to see the lunar eclipse last night. The totality started at 21;22 local time (MET) and ended at 23:02:42.

I shot following picture at 22:02 and had no hope to see anything within the hour:



But then at 23:01:29 - one minute before the totality ended, the clouds broke for just a few seconds and I got this:
