Abstract: We present far-infrared ISOPHOT maps at 100 and 200 microns of a small, quiescent globule. The observed emission is optically thin thermal emission from dust at a temperature of ~14--16 K. The energy budget of the cloud is studied by considering the energy input (interstellar radiation field, ISRF), and outputs (scattered and emitted radiation). The ISRF is sufficient to be the only heating source of dust in the cloud.
