Terribly remote celestial object (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

meteor

Here is my best explanation:

'celestial object' is the definition.

'terribly remote' is the subsidiary indication.

'terribly' is an anagram indicator.

'remote' with letters rearranged gives 'meteor'.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for meteor that I've seen before include "fighter", "extraterrestrial debris", "Component of shower", "Remote (anag)", "Glowing body entering atmosphere", "Streak of light in the night sky", "Remote sort of heavenly body", "Falling star", "Piece of matter in the solar system" and "Heavenly body".)
