Ideograms as art..."Bright"  
So it seems that apart from meaning "bright" this ideogram also means "to understand", "understandable", "clear", "evident", "intelligent"...It's fascinating how in all cultures, and the Chinese culture is no exception, light is associated not only to physical illumination, but also to intellectual, moral and spiritual enlightenment. Anyhoo, to get to the point...what is more bright than the sun (日) and moon (月) together? (and don't you dare say "VY Canis Majoris"! :-D)
