    It isn't. It's brightness remains the same.

    No it won't. The earth is an approximate sphere and at least part of it is always pointed at the sun.

    You mean part of the surface of the earth, because like Gastal said, the Earth is a sphere so it can't all face in the same direction at the same time.
