A short summary of the 1998 Perseid activity is given, based on the reports of 104 observers who saw 4469 Perseids in 723 hours. The ZHR-profile seems to underestimate the true activity. High ZHRs over 130 were reported from Japan at lambda=139.7-139.8 (eq. 2000.0). The traditional maximum occurred around lambda=140.0 with ZHR approx. 80.
