Strange blue light lite up the inside of my pick up truck while driving back roads to my house

My wife and I were driving our 1992 Toyota Truck from Idaho Falls to Shelley, traveling the back roads to get to our home. It was winter and just happened to be Christmas eve. The roads were covered in snow, but it was not snowing, but it was cloudy out.

We turned right at an intersection and began traveling due west, when the inside of the cab of the truck began to light up with a soft glowing blue light. It was a dim light, but visible. I could not see the source of the light, but both my wife and I saw the blue hue reflecting off the dashboard, radio and interior space of the truck cab. I immediately stopped the truck on the road and asked me wife if she saw the light and she confirmed she did. I looked behind us, to the side and front and saw no person, no other vehicles or anything that might have caused this to happen. I did a u-turn and slowly drove back to the area on the road this happened to see if a house light, laser pointer or possible flood light from properties close to the road, but saw nothing. The closest house, was a n outbuilding about 200-300 feet away from the road. We were confused and drove back to the west again and proceeded home. We did not see a craft, we did not hear a noise, or anything out of the ordinary outside of this singular blue light seemingly terminating from the inside of our truck from an unknown source. A few days later, my wife recounted this event to her sister who lives due north in Sugar City ID. This same sister, the same night and time, was driving home and experienced the exact same light in her own car. Seems too good to be true, but it happened and we all stand by it.
