Hoba is the largest meteorite found on Earth

The stone is located in Namibia, Africa. It fell to Earth about 80 thousand years ago. It's mass after the fall was 90 tons.

The Hoba meteorite, short for Hoba West, is a meteorite that lies on the farm of the same name, not far from Grootfontein, in the Otjozondjupa Region of Namibia.

It has been uncovered, but because of its large mass, has never been moved from where it fell. The main mass is estimated at more than 60 tonnes.
