Default Black Globe outside of vacuum?

Let us say you had a (nearly) spherical ship that had settled in a landing pad or soft ground on a planet with a normal atmosphere.

It is equipped with a Black Globe Generator, and somebody switches it on without any flickering. A great big black globe absorbing all energy (including light) appears.

So, it would start absorbing energy from ambient light hitting it, but what happens with physical matter? Is it absorbing matter too or cutting through it when the globe is generated? Or is it just a black sphere? Can it be penetrated by someone poking a stick into it or crossed? Or is it utterly impenetrable to matter as well as energy?

Mucho gracias!
