Hi Thomas,

It seems that Mathematica is slightly disturbed by the option
PlotRange->All. (You can compare the graph returned by the same
expression but without the option PlotRange.) Anyway, you can easily
adjust the size of the graph by setting the option ImageSize to whatever
value(s) is/are fitting your needs. For instance,

Needs["Graphics`ParametricPlot3D`"]
SphericalPlot3D[(Abs[SphericalHarmonicY[3, 0, the, phi]])^2,
{the, 0, Pi}, {phi, 0, 2Pi}, PlotPoints -> 50, PlotRange -> All,
ImageSize -> 500];

Regards,
Jean-Marc
