Its an area where the probability an electron will be found is zero, so it has zero electron density (since its a plane its a flat area with no electron density, whereas a node is a circular area with zero electron density)

The p-, d-, f- orbitals all have nodal planes and non-symmetric electron distribution. The s- orbitals has no nodal planes and symmetric electron distribution.
