“Wow. Take a look at that! We found an entirely new world! Looks like there should be plenty of Power Stars here.”
Lubba, Super Mario Galaxy 2

World 2: Shooting Through the Stars is the second world featured in Super Mario Galaxy 2. It is located near a solar system different from Mario's; however, a very similar solar system was seen for a second during the ending of Super Mario Galaxy. In this world, there are many different galaxies, the last of which, Bowser's Lava Lair, features the first encounter with Bowser.

The music of this world is almost identical to World 1's music until green Prankster Comets begin appearing, which changes the music of World 1.
