The largest hail stone ever recorded fell from the sky in Aurora, Nebraska in 2003, measuring in with a 7" diameter and a 18.75" circumference. 

This may now be the second biggest hail stone ever.

This fell out of a cloud last Friday, July 23rd, 2010...

This time it happened in Vivian, South Dakota.

It looks like this hail sets a new record at just over 7", with a record weight just under 2lbs.  Could you imagine that dropping on your car or rooftop, let's just not.

Here's the full story from KELOLAND TV.
