Sharpless 2-27 (Sh2-27) is a nearby H II region excited by ζOph. We present observations of polarized radio emission from 300 to 480 MHz towards Sh2-27, made with the Parkes 64 m Radio Telescope as part of the Global Magneto-Ionic Medium Survey. These observations have an angular resolution of 1.35 [degrees], and the data are uniquely sensitive to magneto-ionic structure on large angular scales. We demonstrate that background polarized emission towards Sh2-27 is totally depolarized in our...[Show more]
