The anisotropy factor is a parameter from which one can determine preferential forward and backward light scattering. In the present study, we have calculated anisotropy factor as a function of magnetic field for magnetic spheres in a magnetic medium. We have noticed resonances in which indicate preferential enhanced scattering in forward and backward directions. Anisotropy factor is analyzed for various size parameters. The study clearly indicates that scattering can be modulated by means of size parameter of magnetic spheres as well as magnetic field. We have further confirmed the result by studying forward and backward intensity as a function of magnetic field. Resonances noticed in the intensity are in good agreement with the previous argument. This observation can be useful for the magnetic field dependent directional scattering and novel magnetophotonic devices.
