It is seen in the dark sky without the aid of a telescope or binoculars. Isn't this stunning?

An atmosphere 'vapour, steam', and σφαῖρα 'sphere') is a layer of gas or layers of gases that envelop a planet, and is held in place by the gravity of the planetary body. A planet retains an atmosphere when the gravity is great and the temperature of the atmosphere is low.[1] A stellar atmosphere is the outer region of a star, which includes the layers above the opaque photosphere; stars of low temperature might have outer atmospheres containing compound molecules.
