Abstract: Using recent databases of orbits of both comets and asteroids, we search for the parent bodies of potential meteoroid streams crossing the orbits of four terrestrial planets. A list of the parents approaching to the orbit of each planet is presented together with some basic parameters of the potential streams. We divide these parents by the relative velocity of the particular approach to the given planet, since only high-speed encounters of the meteoroids of a potential stream can be observed as the meteors in planetary atmospheres.
