Basically *nothing* would happen since the energy of a rather 'tiny' nuclear bomb wouldn't have such a big effect on an area the size of jupiter. The
most logical explanation was already given, the sphere would likely heat up and slowly dissipate the heat. Given the large size of the sphere, I think
the nuclear bomb would have the same effect like a drop of water in a large bath-tub, it would hardly have any effect.
You could as well ask what happens with the energy stored in burnt-out reactor cores enclosed in containers and stored away. What happens is that the
radioactivity (and thus energy) would simply dissipate in time due to the half-life of the radioactivity.....and while doing so create heat.
As for your sphere, I think it's large enough that the energy of the bomb would just spread out but not really have any major effect, the energy of
that one bomb is simply not enough compared to the size of the sphere.
