White circular UFO outside Boston disappears--then reappears atop neon orange vertical-ellipse-shaped cloud & witnessed to Hartford CT.

Immediately after emerging from the Boston tunnels, headed Westbound on I-90, I saw a constant stationary illumination, circular and white, directly ahead of us. Too large and too early in the day to be a star, I pointed it out to my husband, who was driving. We joked about it, but I kept watching. Heading due-west, I realized it was moving North and South, but there was no smoke trail. As soon as I opened my mouth to mention it to my husband, he exclaimed, “It’s moving!” Very soon after, it seemed to stop moving North-South, but the light got smaller and smaller until it disappeared from sight.

Minutes later, we were passing over a body of water by a Framingham exit. The reflection looked orange, so I looked up, expecting to see sunset starting. Instead, the sky was bright blue and clear of clouds, except for one, which was directly ahead of us. It was neon orange in color, a vertical ellipse in shape, about 40 azimuth from the horizon, about 10 azimuth in height. I joked in less technical terms that it looked like female genitalia.

I do a lot of sky gazing, I’ve never seen a cloud like this, my jaw was in my chest, eyes trained on it. I remarked that it looked like it was glowing brighter, and the constantly white UFO reappeared at the very top of the elliptical cloud, growing from pinpoint in size to the same size as we had originally seen it. The cloud dissipated within seconds, from the top down, looking more purple as it dissipated. There was a bright white flash at the very top of the UFO, and a few seconds later it seemed to momentarily change from white to a faint green, but I don’t remember if this was before or after the cloud dissipated.

It was difficult to gauge if the UFO was moving or hovering after that, due to the winding roads. It fell out of sight a few times when we dropped in altitude, (particularly Westbound on I/84). The diameter of the illumination was consistent until we neared the Hartford, Connecticut area, when it seemed to grow larger, and appeared to be hovering South of Hartford. We lost sight of it when we exited in New Britain, Connecticut, and we couldn’t see it at our final destination.
