Aims. We have studied optical spectra of the symbiotic star Z And, obtained during its latest outburst started in April 2006, wi th the aim of finding changes in the spectrum yielding clues to the na ture of the hot component and its outbursts. Methods. The spectroscopic observations of Z And have been made using the 1.5-meter telescope at the Tartu Observatory, Estonia, and processed in a standard way. Results. We have found high velocity satellites to the hydrogen Balmer emission lines… Expand
