"Residual strahls in solar wind electron dropouts: Signatures of magnetic connection to the Sun, disconnection, or interchange reconnection?," Crooker, N. U., and Pagel, C. JGR 113, A02106 (2008). ADS
Such wonderful lessons for solar physicists! Pitch-angle distributions are really not very accessible by remote-sensing (astronomical) techniques, so we should pore over the cartoons describing observations of them wherever they can be measured, such as here in the solar wind. Besides, it is in color!
