Relative size of a human being to the Hoba meteorite.

The Hoba, or Hoba West meteorite lies on the farm "Hoba West", not far from Grootfontein, in the Otjozondjupa Region of Icons-flag-na.png Namibia. It has been uncovered but, because of its large mass, has never been moved from where it fell. It is the largest meteorite uncovered and is the largest naturally occurring sample of iron, but it is actually ferronickel.
