Puzzle No. 465, 466 : 5 Stars, Every Second Straight

These are the last of the WPC practice puzzles.

Rules  (as in WPC IB) –

For 465 (Serbian Snacks, round 7) – Place five stars into the grid so that their cells do not touch each other or cells with numbers, not even diagonally. One of the stars is large and covers 3 x 3 cells, the others are small and cover a single cell. Digits denote the number of cells occupied by stars in the same row/column.

For 466 (Dutch Delight, round 4) – Draw a single closed loop that consists of horizontal and vertical segments and visits every cell exactly once. Along the loop, every second cell where the loop makes no turn is marked with a circle.

Enjoy!
