OK, so the word is schlieren. Defined by Wikipedia as:
Schlieren (from German; singular "Schliere") are optical inhomogeneities in
transparent material not visible to the human eye. Schlieren physics
developed out of the need to produce high-quality lenses void of these
inhomogeneities. These inhomogeneities are localized differences in optical path length
that cause light deviation. This light deviation is converted to shadow in
a schlieren system.
I don't see how that relates to meteoritic dust imbedded in Libyan Desert
