Distribution function of Θ, the difference between the inferred orientation angle of the magnetic field and that of the ridges, for the selected pixels. The orange line and the black line represent the Planck data with () and without (ψ353) background subtraction, respectively. The red line refers to the polarization angle of the subtracted background (). The structures of matter appear as statistically aligned with the orientation of the magnetic field projected on the plane of the sky.
