Any atmosphere with particle density low enough to not cause excited particles in gas form and/or electromagnetically charged particles to frequently collide and behave like gases in denser atmospheres, where heavier gas molecules displace the lighter ones and form substantial enough static pressure to cause it to behave like a low viscosity fluid. Exospheres can be permanent on celestial bodies, periodic on comets, and sporadic on other small bodies.
