There are Four Liliths
Dark Moon Lilith, Black Moon Lilith, osculating Lilith and asteroid Lilith. Only Asteroid Lilith is an actual physical body. Two of the Liliths are theoretical points. The Waldemath Black Moon may or may not be a real body. Then there is the fixed star Algol which is also associated with Lilith.
Black Moon Lilith is also known as Mean Lilith. This Lilith uses the average orbit of the theoretical Black Moon.
Asteroid Lilith is the only Lilith that is an actual, verifiable physical body.
Osculating Lilith is also called True Lilith. Her orbit oscillates wildly. This Lilith uses the real orbit of the Black Moon. This is another theoretical point. Some people, like Juan Antonio Revilla, believe that she is the most important Lilith and most accurately portrays Lilith’s uncontrollable nature.
Dark Moon Lilith is also called the Waldemath Black Moon. Some people have claimed to have seen this Moon, but those claims cannot be substantiated.
