An overview of visual and radio observations made during the peak time of the 1992 Perseids is given. The shower is found to have produced high activity in good agreement with the nodal longitude of the newly rediscovered comet P/Swift-Tuttle (1992t). Both the 1991 and the 1992 outburst are clearly due to the presence of P/Swift-Tuttle being in the vicinity of its descending node.
