Based on shower simulations we show that the electron distribution $ f(\theta,r,E;s) $, describing fully the fraction of electrons with energy $E$,at shower age $s$, at the distance from the axis $r$ and having angle $\theta$ is the same for any shower, independently of the primary energy or mass and shower fluctuations. We find an analytic description of this function fitting it best in most populated regions of the variable space.
