In the theory of curves, a magnetic field generates a magnetic flow whose trajectories are curves called magnetic curves. This paper aims at studying some properties for these curves which corresponding to the Killing magnetic fields in the 3-dimensional Euclidean space. We investigate the trajectories of the magnetic fields called $T$-magnetic and $e$-magnetic curves, also we give some characterizations of these curves. In addition, we determine all magnetic curves for new spherical images of a spherical curve and finally, we defray some examples to confirm our main results.
