Geometrical model accounting for the morphology of the ENLR and its mis-alignment with the radio source. A - plan view showing projections on the plane of the sky. The ENLR is formed within the section of the galactic disk circumscribed by the radiation cone. The cone has an opening angle of 120°. The radio source axis is the projection of the radio jet (also the cone axis) on the sky. B - Side elevation showing the radiation cones protruding through the upper and lower disk surfaces.
