Location: Tampa, FL
Shape: Light
Duration: under 10 seconds
I saw a very white light in sky for about 8 seconds

I looked up to check out the circling police helicopter, and immediately focused on 1 super bright, white, round light, that was beyond the helicopter and higher in elevation. The helicopter was at aprox. 500ft. This object was @ thousands of feet in elevation, and a couple of miles in the distance. I contemplated all scenarios but this thing was way to bright. Not a balloon, it traveling parallel to ground. I focused on the helicopter for a second and looked back and I couldn't find it again. I immediately turned on my Flightaware app and there was no aircraft in that airspace. The background was pure blue sky.
The time was between 12-1pm.
