Most of the 2004 Perseid observations were conducted at the YARC 2004 Camp. A declining branch of an elevated activity was observed on 2004 August 11 at 20h15m UT with a ZHR of 152+-7. The highest value of the population index was also reached at about the same time. We used video recordings to derive the Perseid radiant location for the night of the maximum. It is located at alpha = 48.2 deg. and delta = 57.9 deg. (solar longitude = 140 deg.).
