Abstract: We present narrow-band Hubble Space Telescope images of the young planetary nebula AFGL 618. These images have allowed us to study the detailed morphology of shock-excited emission present in the bipolar lobes of this object. These images reveal the presence of three highly collimated outflows emanating from the central regions of AFGL 618. We discuss the significance of the detection of these outflows and the possible origins of these features.
