They also sell a 8 foot High Output T8 bulb which has a recessed double contact end on it. These are typically 86 watt bulbs. Model #236877 is this type, F96T8/TL835/HO
When you go to the website, all of the above models have a picture which can be enlarged so you can compare the ends of your current bulbs with the types being sold.
Be careful too to check if you need T12 or T8 bulbs as they are not interchangeable. Read Less

Answer: 
Philips Lighting does not make a F96T8 8 foot single pin bulb in the color temperature of 6500K. It is not an option. Home Depot does sell this type of bulb in 4100K and 5000K. The 5000K is similar in color to noon day sunshine. This would be the closest match to what you are asking for. It won't be exact though.
This bulb, Model #236869 is in stock right now as of 02/15/2015
