We have computed a series of axisymmetric simulations of a cloudlet travelling away from a photoionizing source to reproduce the emission arising from the compact knots observed in some Planetary Nebulae. The predicted spectra agree approximately with the observed spectra when shown in two-line ratio diagnostic diagrams. The predicted and observed spatial distributions of the emission (with high ionization lines extending more towards the source than lower ionization lines) agree in a qualitative way.
