Did you hear it? A mysterious 'alien' sound was overheard by many late Wednesday night in Salisbury, according to multiple reports on the NextDoor App.

Resident Cameron Glen told FOX 46 Charlotte he heard 'a loud noise last night around 11 p.m.' and others in the neighborhood claim they heard the odd sound as well. 

The mysterious noise reportedly sounded like "a combination of a locomotive and a space shuttle taking off," and lasted for about five minutes.

Reports of dogs and coyotes barking and howling in the neighborhood followed. 

The Rowan County Sheriff's Office said they're not aware of anything unusual in the area. FOX 46 Charlotte has reached out to the Rowan Airport and Duke Power for information.
