The Hoba meteorite is the largest known meteorite on Earth, it’s also the single largest piece of naturally occurring iron weighing in at around 60 tons. In terms of actual size it measures 2.7 metres by 2.7 metres (8 feet 9 inches) by 0.9 metres (3 feet). It’s believed to have touched down some 80,000 years ago in modern day Namibia and was only discovered in 1920 after the owner of the land ran over it with his plow. Chemically the meteorite is composed of about 84% iron and and 16% nickel.

A slice of the Fukang meteorite. When it slammed into the surface of Earth, there was little sign of the beauty that lay inside. But cutting the Fukang meteorite open yielded a breathtaking sight. Within the rock, translucent golden crystals of a mineral called olivine gleamed among a silvery honeycomb of nickel-iron.

This is supposed to show us the scale of Phobos, but I'm pretty sure it's more likely an illustration of how we're all going to die :)
