Bright light in the sky over Ikea

I was in the parking lot for Ikea and I was gazing up at the sky because it was such a beautiful day. I noticed that there was a small, but extremely bright, glowing light against the blue sky. It looked like an airplane light but it was not moving and for some reason it looked like it was up much higher than a plane would be, but i'm not really sure. The sky was so bright it seemed strange to see such a bright light in the sky. it's possible it was a planet, i guess, but i have never before seen a star or planet against such a very bright afternoon sky. no other stars or lights were visible in the sky.
