In sigma bonds, the electron density is cylindrically symmetrical around the internuclear axis (the line connecting the nuclei of the atoms in question), resulting in a continuous, even distribution and no nodal planes. In pi bonds, there is a nodal plane at the internuclear axis, meaning that there is no electron density there and that it is on the sides of the internuclear axis rather than spread along it.
