Default Oil Leak in 2013 Accord LX 2.4L

Hi All,

Currently, I am seeing an oil leak occurring behind my alternator. Last night, I also noticed a layer of oil all over my oil filter and oil pan exterior. I thought this could be from the valve cover gasket, but the leak is happening below that. My dipstick is showing good levels just below the top hole and I am not seeing any dripping on the ground. Could this be the VTEC solenoid gasket? I just cannot find it's exact location on my 2.4L motor.

Lately, in this cold weather, I've been hearing that VTC actuator rattling pretty loud, but for a split second. Not sure if that could have an affect?

I've attached some pics for reference. I really appreciate any advice on this.
