Bright Blue Orb descending in night sky

Was driving northwest through Framingham, and I saw a large, bright electric blue orb. It was a blue I'd never seen before. Much like a blue Christmas light. but orbital, gigantic and bright, and a bit more cyan than a Christmas light. It seemed to take a downward arc from a high altitude, and it went as far down as I could see behind the trees along the horizon about a mile away from me, near Nobscot mountain.

It was difficult to measure scale, but I'd estimate it was about the size of a full-size pickup truck, length-wise. It was not a flare, airplane, helicopter, or meteor, which I've seen many of at night.

The behavior, speed, trajectory, size and color were enough to add up to an anomalous object in the night sky. It never faded, didn't have a trail of any sort, and had a slight flare around it, due to the brightness of the object.
