Neon electronic structure. Animation of the electronic structure of the element neon. An atom of this element has 10 electrons, shown here as black dots in shells around the nucleus (centre). The electrons are in two shells. The animation zooms in to show the two electrons in the first shell (both in the 1s orbital). There are eight electrons filling the second shell (the 2s and 2p orbitals). The electron configuration is 2,8. The isotope shown here is neon-20, with a nucleus of 10 protons (red) and 10 neutrons (blue). All isotopes of an element have the same electronic structure.
