Why is the moon and not the sun symbol for wisdom enlightentment in zen?

"How vast and wide the unobstructed sky of samadhi! How bright and clear the perfect moonlight of the Fourfold Wisdom!"
In a dark night when the moon rises, this light of the moon make us be able to see in the dark, shining this light onto our mind and purifying it.
