Abstract: The present paper summarizes the analysis of a set of 1028 photographic orbits of meteors with magnitudes brighter than -3. The analysis was made separately for subsets of the meteors brighter than magnitude -3, -5, -7, -9. Fireball streams were sought using the method of Southworth - Hawkins' D-discriminant considering radiants, their daily motions, sizes and shapes of the radiant areas. Most of the detected fireball streams belong to known meteor streams; a few of them were classified as new meteor streams. The mean orbits, radiants, periods of activity and velocities of the streams are presented in Tables 1-8.
