Unusually remote shooting star (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

meteor

Here is my best explanation:

'shooting star' is the definition.

('meteor' can be a synonym of 'shooting star')

'unusually remote' is the subsidiary indication.

'unusually' indicates anagramming the letters.

'remote' anagrammed gives 'meteor'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for meteor that I've seen before include "fighter", "streaker?", "Streak of light in the night sky", "Solar System body", "component", "Body falling from space", "Space body", "lump of rock", "Remote sort of heavenly body" and "Remote (anag)".)
