Left: distribution functions of the orientation angle θ from Eq. (9) for the northern Galactic hemisphere and for 3 mean values of the Galactic latitude: b = 7° (black curve), 15° (orange curve) and 33° (red curve). Right: same as for the left panel but for the southern hemisphere. The mean values of b are −8° (black curve), −20° (orange curve) and −39° (red curve).
