did it sound anything like the tick metal makes as it contracts during cooling? anywhere on your exhaust can make the sound which could be why it is hard to pin point if that is it.

Not trying to dismiss it as nothing, but if it were cool at midnight(thermally), then it could be from the thermal expansion as previously mentioned. It can sound like a "tick" or sometimes a "pang" so to speak. Let us know what you find.
