Silver Stars Pop-Up is the first mission of the Boo Moon Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy 2. The mission's objective is to collect the Silver Stars.


The player begins on the Starting Planet and has a limit field of view, as the planet is encased in darkness. Moving forward and to the right, the player will find a coin and getting near it will open up a wall, then moving directly ahead and through a narrow passage with some Boos will lead the player to the Launch Star to the next planet. In the Sinking Swamp, the player has to ride a Snake Block to progress, dodging the Octoboos as it moves along. The player then needs to ride another Snake Block which will move through a ? Coin and end at another Snake Block, which will move through a platform that will cause the swamp to rise up, effecting the flow of gravity.

Moving along and avoiding some Octoboos, the player will reach a Launch Star that will send them to The Moon. Here, the player needs to use the tilting moon to collect five Star Chips, which will cause a Launch Star to appear, sending the player to the Graveyard Planet. On this planet, the player needs to activate a switch, which will cause the graveyard to pop up, allowing the player to collect the five Silver Stars on the planet, though the platforms will remain for a short time before falling back down. Once all five of the Silver Stars are collected, the Power Star will appear.
