clicking noise in alternator

I have a 93 buick century wagon that when I started it up last night, it started but had a rattling, clicking noise around the alternator. When I turned on my headlights, noise increased but was able to drive home without any problems other than rattling noise. Upon looking (though it was dark), it seems the sound is coming from alternator. Could this be possible? Or should I look at another area?

Remove the belt and rotate the pulleys by hand until you find out which 1 is causing the noise and then go from there.
