Multiple leaks on '99 F23A4

So I haven't been driving Selene as much lately, and because of that I haven't been checking under the hood as often as I should have. Just a note before I begin, I cleaned the engine bay in mid-January of 2018 and it did not look this bad at all. So in the past 4 months or so it has gotten like this.

Checked the oil yesterday and it was almost empty. Filled it with 5 quarts of 5W-30 high mileage oil. Found multiple leak points this morning after taking a second look when I arrived at work. Before I leave for home today, I will check the oil again...

See attached photos... Any help on where they might be coming from would be a big help. My suspicions are the following:

Valve cover gasket (replaced three years ago)
Valve cover bolt gaskets (also replaced three years ago; one definitely tore a little when installing)
Oil pan gasket (replaced two years ago)
Power steering pump
Distributor inner o-ring (cap and rotor were replaced three years ago but the gaskets were not)

The power steering doesn't make any noise nor is it hard to turn the wheel. I filled it a year ago with a little Honda PSF, because it was barely below the low mark.

In the last photo, that's some kind of sensor coming out on the driver's side of the engine bay, near the rear of the engine, and I'm not sure what it is or why it's covered in fluid. In January, that sensor was clean and dry as a bone.
