Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Candābha Jātaka:The Bodhisatta was once an ascetic and,at the moment of his death,answered his disciples’ inquiries with the words "moonlight and sunlight." When his chief pupil (identified with Sāriputta) interpreted the words,his colleagues did not believe him until the Bodhisatta appeared in mid-air and said that whoever meditated on the sun and the moon would be born in theābhassara world (J.i.474).

The Jātaka was preached about the interpretation of a problem bySāriputta at the gates ofSankassa.
