Description [ correction ]

The Hoba meteorite lies on the farm 'Hoba West', 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 over 60 tons, and it is the largest known meteorite and the most massive naturally-occurring piece of iron known at the Earth's surface.
