Although 2021 EQ3 is not actually the only asteroid that has come very close to Earth, it is one of the largest asteroids.

While it has only a 0.41% chance of hitting Earth, NASA is still finding potential impacts of a collision. But given its small size, it is unlikely to have an impact in horrific proportions, CNN reported.
