Welcome. We get a lot of these sorts of posts. What you are looking downing at is the lit portion of a disc.
Why do we fall back to earth? Because our weight pushes us down, no laws, no gravity pulling us. It is the law of intelligence.

And for those without a 4000x3000 pixel resolution screen, the picture looks like this.



You can far better see the edge of the sunlit portion or the boundary between day and night. Its very pretty.
