Hi there.

Being new to this list I have a short question

I have found a site that gives me predictions for visual satellites I may
observe from my location in Adelaide, South Australia.  But it identifies
the satellites by a number, eg #20625.

Could someone tell me what this number is, and if there is a site or
software that will detail what the corresponding satellite is and its

Thanks for your time.
