We have performed a magnetic Compton scattering experiment with a ferromagnetic actinide compound of UTe. We have combined the results of the magnetic Compton scattering experiment and the magnetization measurement and have deduced the spin and the orbital magnetic moments. Furthermore, we have decomposed the spin moment into a 5f component and a conduction-electron-like component. We have obtained the spin moment of the 5f electron mu s(5f)=-1.21 mu B, the orbital moment of the 5f electron mu L(5f)=3.48 mu B and the spin moment of the conduction-electron-like component mu s(s,p,d)=036 mu B.
