Does anyone know if it has ever snowed on the moonand mars .if so how much ?

Report as

The Moon does not have an atmosphere, nor water, so no. It might have been possible on Mars. In Mars' early history, it had an atmosphere and water in its crust, and possibly on the surface. There could have been snow at the north and south poles in the past. Eventually, Mars' small size and slow rotational speed prevented the water from thriving on the surface -- the Sun would have vaporized the water due to Mars' lack of a magnetic field.

No . There is not water to form snow but shattered meteors that spread across the surface of mars can look like snow and the moons sand can make it look like a snowstorm

There's apparently ice caps on the top of mars, or once was? So maybe yes but I'm not sure.

They don't have water, and that's what snow is made of. Plain and simple.
