Best Answer

There are hundreds of Moons that are around 10 kilometers or less in diameter. Mainly in orbit around Jupiter or Saturn.

Jupiter's smallest moon is probably S/2003 J 12 or S/2003 J9 at only 1 kilometer in diameter.

Saturn's smallest moon is probably Aegaeon at only 0.5 kilometer in diameter - although it is classified as a moonlet.

If you don't want the moon to be around a planet, the Asteroid IDA (243 IDA) has a tiny moon called Dactyl which is under a kilometer in diameter.
