NGC 5548 BLR structure as a function of distance to the center as well as height above the midplane for the two variability campaigns in 1988/89 (blue) and 1993 (black). The highly ionized lines are connected by a solid line. The Balmer lines are kept separately. The dot at radius zero gives the size of a Schwarzschild black hole (with M = 6.71 × 107   M) multiplied by a factor of twenty.
