Transparent orb with object in it's center sighted over the Pacific South of the Aleutian Islands.

On January 19, 2023 at approximately 17:15 Zulu just before sunrise we were piloting an A330-900 flying at M.83 from HND to SEA at FL370. Approaching 49N160W (from 48N170W) we spotted a semi transparent spherical orb above us and slightly to our left. In the center of the orb there was an object that was either reflective or admitting a small amount of light. Initially it looked like we were going to fly under the object. But, instead of getting closer the object started to move farther away from us, it moved in a straight line from NNW to SSE in front of us before it accelerated in and disappeared into the horizon to the south.
