See it larger.
Alice Glazkov watched an oil tanker, the Challenge Pegasus, come into Boston Harbor this evening.

Every now and then while riding the red line I'd see one coming in near Columbia Station. One filled the crescent of Carson Beach even though it was far away.
I wonder if what you saw was an LNG tanker. Now those things are truly gigantic (and they also require closing the Tobin Bridge - not because it might scrape the bottom but for terrorism reasons).
I have a unit in Charlestown Commerce Center. A few years ago, that huge mint-green LNG tanker was at the terminal across the river, and I was taking some photos from the parking lot. Within about 30 seconds a police officer approached and asked what I was doing. They take the security of those boats seriously!
I was on Castle Island and took a time lapse video as it passed by, I was one of maybe ten people on the island at around sunset, as they closed parking lot. I took a Hubway bike over and walked from the closest dock.
