As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,

The Glorious Quran is very clear about the earth is:

1- Spherical.
2- Suspended in Space.
3- Rotating around itself. (emphasis on dahaha and its derivatives)
4- Is traveling in Space.

There are many Noble Verses that speak about the earth's shape and motion in space.  Please visit:

The possible Green Carpet:

The Hadith in question is not in contradiction with Science.  The aurora lights from the atmosphere's edge in space do many times look green:





The Aurora Lights from earth also look Green:





The earth is like Carpet:

Also, earth from space does look like a carpet:





Earth is Spherical and Rotating and Traveling Fast:

And again, remember that the Glorious Quran does state in several Noble Verses that the earth is:

1- Spherical.
2- Suspended in Space.
3- Rotating around itself. (emphasis on dahaha and its derivatives)
4- Is traveling in Space.

Take care,

We have Quran speaking on phases of moon. We can see the spheric shadow depending on the phases. It doesnot really matter how one wish to interpret the formation of spheric shadow, was it made by earth's shape or moon's own shadow.

If its due to moon's own shadow, then we have verse of spheric wrapping of day and night which is similar effect of spheric wrapping seen on moon. differents being spheric wrapping took a day and a month.

Yukawir from kura( كُرَة ), which means "ball" or "sphere"

Quote
And the moon - We have determined for it phases, until it returns [appearing] like the old date stalk. It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming. (36:39-40)

He created the heavens and earth in truth. He wraps the night over the day and wraps the day over the night and has subjected the sun and the moon, each running [its course] for a specified term. Unquestionably, He is the Exalted in Might, the Perpetual Forgiver. (39:5)
