a star-shot sky is a sky with sporadic shooting stars, right?

Thank you.

    It's not exactly the same as this definition but it's the same idea

    shot (adj)
    presenting a play or pattern of colors;
    mixed or streaked: [often: after a noun] the dawn sky shot with gold.

    In this case, it's filled with a random pattern of stars
