This is a schematic drawing of the electron probability density distribution for an atom in the state: n=3, l=2, m=o. The central nucleus is not shown. We see an equatorial torus with detached "caps" equally spaced along the polar axes.

     This image is a schematic drawing of the basic morphology of the planetary nebula NGC 7026. There is a prominent toroid in the middle and detached cap-like structures equally spaced above and below the toroid.
