Best Answer

Many Chinese believed the dragon held, or at least chased, the sun, and many drawings depict this as a flaming red ball. Over the years, this sun changed color from red to a silvery-pearl color, and gradually the ball came to be considered a flaming pearl, known as the night shining pearl.
