Default 08 Spectra 5 oil Filter location

Where is the oil filter on these cars? I have been under as far as I can get without elevating and couldnt see. Ive been changing my own oil for 13 years now so experience is probably not the issue. I just want to know before I get under it in case I am still too blind.

Thank you all

It's under the alternator on the front end of the engine.

It is always a wonderful thing to climb under for the first time and go WTH is the filter. On your 08 Spectra5 2.0L it is you see under Alt in right front bottom of car. On my 03 Spectra LS 1.8L it is in back on middle of block. On my 04 Sorento 3.5L it is on left front bottom of car up behind A/C. Musical filters is fun. And the fact that the filters are darker blue or black is no help these days in areas that are dark to start to see them.
