infrared cirrus

(cirrus, galactic cirrus, ISM cirrus)
(cirrus-cloud-like infrared emissions from dust, etc.)

Infrared cirrus (or galactic cirrus or ISM cirrus or just cirrus) is used for cirrus-cloud-like patterns seen in the interstellar medium (ISM), particularly in the infrared. They are the product of dust and nebulae. They present problems for infrared and millimeter astronomy, as a source of confusion.
