I use this site for size estimates:

The asteroid's absolute magnitude has changed since the OP's screenshot (to 28.461), so this gives me approx 6 meters. If such an asteroid were to hit our atmosphere, it would explode before reaching the ground.

The listed parameters may change further, because they have only discovered it a couple of days ago.
