I am having a hard time seeing the screen is it a fine mesh like a screen door or a wide holed screen like a dime or similar to? If it's like the screen door inside tank distance approx 12-15 inches-- like a dime or similar on top 8-10 inches from basking decor-- you can hand w/ these 3 M command Velcro fasteners--long plastic zip ties picture hanging wire-fishing line- potted plant wire hangers-

It may show a flash if you can take it from above the screen would be good

I think you were referring to the UVB bulb here. In general your goal is to get it over the basking area as much as it can be (obviously it cant be directly over it as that's where the basking bulb is), placement will go by that. You could angle it so that it runs by basking spot and the hammock as well, that would also give a gradient of lower UVB on the cool side which is good so they can self regulate exposure.
