Create a new layer named "border" with a fill type of transparency, then fill it with #0018D0. Create another layer named "color" with a fill type of transparency, then go Select > Feather and set it to 45px. Set the foreground color to #66E6FF and the background color to #0013a4, then press L for the gradient tool and click and drag from bottom to top of the selection while holding CTRL (to keep it straight) then release. Press CTRL+I to invert the selection then CTRL+K, this will remove the fuzzy blur around the orb.    More detail...
