The image was captured from Latitude 6.6036 degrees in Lagos Nigeria and despite what is called a poor seeing condition in astronomy and a high cirrus cloud
preventing better resolution, the image was captured using, a ZWO cloned planetary/guiding CMOS camera and a 127mm maksutov-casse grain telescope, aided by a 2x Barlow lens.
A third approach would use chemicals for cirrus cloud
thinning (CCT), reducing the clouds' heat trapping effect and allowing more long-wave radiation to escape into space, cooling the earth's surface.

What two-word name can mean a wispy cirrus cloud
and a pond plant?
Our upper air witnessed two examples of tropical advection in the higher levels: lengthy bands of Cirrus cloud
emanating from equatorial latitudes closer to South America and melding with mid latitude flows south and east of the sub-continent.
Natural, we are indefatigable readers: a cirrus cloud
The persistent formation of contrails is associated with increased cirrus cloud
cover, another factor warming the Earth's surface.
His attempts to precisely describe the cirrus cloud
reflect the need to extend descriptive grammar towards a rhythmically paratactic prolixity, when the object of description itself is in a state of constant transformation.
The new data could be used to improve models of cirrus cloud
formation, the researchers say.
One example the press release cites of a supposedly non-authoritative source is work published recently by MIT climatologist Richard Lindzen's team suggesting that clouds in the tropics operate as an "iris." (Warmer sea temperatures in the tropics cause changes in the relative distribution of cumulus and cirrus cloud
cover which allows heat to escape, helping to cool the planet.) The press release claims Lindzen's work didn't undergo peer review and belittles it by hinting that it was published in a mere "meteorological bulletin" instead of any "leading scientific journals."
A sample of the high upper turbulence associated with a cold front could be seen as cirrus cloud
earlier in the week.
