Daniel van Os ( developed a program named "Meteoracle" which is very usefull to compute the ZHR profile for a given date taking sun, moon and radiantaltitude into account. At DMS Daniel's program is used by almost everyone. Below the expected ZHR-profile for the Perseids 2004 is presented based on DMS-showerdata:
