The magnetic field structure of a star-forming Bok globule BHR 71 was determined based on near-infrared polarimetric observations of background stars. The magnetic field in BHR 71 was mapped from 25 stars. By using a simple 2D parabolic function, the plane-of-sky magnetic axis of the core was found to be θmag = 125° ± 11°. The plane-of-sky mean magnetic field strength of BHR 71 was found to be Bpos = 8.8–15.0 μG, indicating that the BHR 71 core is magnetically supercritical with λ = 1.44–2.43…
