While waiting for the Orionids at Makapu'u I captured this with my fisheye. The Milky way is slightly visible in the sky above. Part of Taurus the bull is visible near the top of the ridge on the right. The seven sisters (Pleiades) are visible right by a cloud and below them Jupiter (Iupika in Hawaiian) shines brightly. The name Hoku-noho-aupuni is the Hawaiian word for Milky Way meaning literally ruling star.
