'06 Maxima - location of oil drain plug

I haven't changed oil in a vehicle in about 20 years. I'm going to start showing my son how to do it on his truck, so I thought I would do it on my car also. The problem is that the first plug that I unscrewed was for my coolant. Thankfully, it's time to fill my coolant anyway.

If you have a diagram of where the oil drain plug is located on a 2005 Nissan Maxima SE, I would appreciate it.

maybe hidden

I am not sure about your car but maybe it is hidden under some kind of plastic shield.
They love putting covers all over engines now days.
