The Phoenix Mars Lander was able to use its laser instruments to detect snow falling from the clouds above the red planet.

The snow was falling from 2.5 miles above where the Phoenix Mars Lander touched down months ago.

NASA scientists presented their findings on Monday, and now want to know if the snow hit the ground anywhere.

The Phoenix Mars Lander will now look for any signs of snow on the ground.

It also discovered clay, as well as calcium carbonate from soil samples.

This all backs up the belief that there was once water on Mars.
