Shooting star (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

meteor

'shooting star' is the definition.
(I know that shooting star can be written as meteor)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for meteor that I've seen before include "streaker?" , "Glowing body entering atmosphere" , "Small extraterrestrial body" , "Remote type of heavenly body" , "Solar System body" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times, The Independent, The Guardian, The Sun, the Penny Press, The Mirror, The Telegraph and the Evening Standard.
