The Hoba meteorite is an iron meteorite (of the ataxtite group) weighing some 60,000 kg – the largest meteorite ever found.
It still lies where it was found in 1920 at Hoba Farm, near Grootfontein,
Namibia. Surprisingly, there is no crater, perhaps because the great chunk
of metal entered our atmosphere at a long, shallow angle and was slowed
down considerably by atmospheric drag.
