Hoba BM Specimen


I’m very grateful to Professor Peter Spargo (University of Cape Town) for permission to post a series of articles on the Hoba meteorite.

First published in in Monthly Notes of the Astronomical Society of South Africa, they are a detailed treatment of the discovery, analysis, history and background of this wonderful rock – “the greatest captive meteorite in the world”, as he describes it.
