I know that a radial node is a value of $r$ where the probability of finding an electron is zero, and nodal planes are planes where the probability of finding an electron is zero, but I haven't been able to find a good definition of an angular node. What are they exactly?

    $\begingroup$ Nodal everything are places where probability of finding an electron is zero. Some of them are planes, some are not. $\endgroup$ – Ivan Neretin Sep 16 '16 at 7:57
