Abstract

A computer program for calculation of a theoretical meteor shower radiant is introduced. The program makes also choice of optimum method for a given parent's body orbit. Six different methods of radiant calculation are used in the program. Moreover, the program computes some additional characteristics of mean orbit of investigated shower.

Key words: meteors, meteoroids
