The largest meteorite ever found is a 66-ton iron meteorite called `Hoba`, found In 1920 by a farmer was plowing a field near Grootfontein, Namibia. It is also the largest piece of iron ever found near Earth's surface. It is tabular in shape and about nine feet long, nine feet wide and about three feet thick. It was given the name "Hoba" because it was discovered on a farm named "Hoba West".

It's important to use precise terminology here.A meteor is a "shooting star".A meteorite is the remnant of a shooting star that has impacted the Earth.A meteoroid is something that would be a meteor or meteorite if it were to enter the Earth's atmosphere, but it hasn't done so yet. The distinction between "asteroid" and "meteoroid' is thus largely one of semantics; Ceres is the largest asteroid and therefore the largest "meteoroid" as well.The largest meteorite is the Hoba meteorite, which weighs over 60 tons.
