We report on new optical spectroscopic observations of the protoplanetary nebula AFGL 618. Compared to older observations we find a change in some emission line ratios indicating dynamical evolutionary processes during the last few years. Possible reasons for this behaviour are discussed.

Key words: planetary nebulae: AFGL 618 - stars: AGB - post: AGB
