It wasn't what I saw, but what I heard. low whiring sound directly over my home, but it caused no rumbling of my wind

Between 1 am and 2 am was a strange occurence over my home. It wasn't something I saw, but it was more of what I heard. I am accustomed to hearing Life Flight over my house and I am also familiar with a small frieght train that passes at around 2 am a couple of times a week through our neighborhood. However, last night there was a strange sound I have not heard before. First there was a white light that shown through my bedroom window which cause me to turn my head. It quickly went out, but was followed by a low whiring sound almost like a steam roller. It wasn't the local train because it didn't fade in and out and there was no train whistle. This sound was constant and loud similar to the Life flight, but there was no rattling of our windows as is the case when helicopers fly overhead. In the morning, a neighbor confirmed the same unusual noise and had come to the same conclusion as myself that this was not the normal noises we encounter regularly. I have not been much into UFO sitings, but this was too strange. I thought it might be of interest.
