You have a compass which always points to the North Pole.
There is no South Pole.
One end of the needle in a compass points to the center of the flat earth,
and the other points to the outside of the earth.

I am guessing you are exaggerating for effect.
. . . you need a basketball to cover the sun.
Hard for me to say what the explanation is, just from your description.
It could be an anomaly in your eye where you see clouds or moisture in the air lit up by the Sun to make it seem bigger than it really, is.
It is a good idea to use a good camera with a telescopic zoom so you can make out the exact point where the Sun stops and the atmosphere begins.
So, the Sun never disappears from being too small to see, it disappears from the point of view of people on the earth, this is the action of perspective and the vanishing point, if you were 120 miles off the surface, it would never disappear.
The bullet is moving, but it is going in a straight line, depending on what direction you were aiming at when it started out.
Can a person walk on the underside of a flat Earth?

Gravity is the force pushing down because the earth is actually constantly moving up.
