An atmosphere is a layer of gases surrounding a planet or other material body, that is held in place by the gravity of that body.

If we talk in terms of earth then atmosphere of Earth is the layer of gases that surrounds the planet Earth and is retained by Earth's gravity. The atmosphere of Earth protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation, warming the surface through heat retention and reducing temperature extremes between day and night.
