Cambria UFO 07/10/2007 and strange earthquake felt on 07/18/2007

At Approximately 23:30 on July 10th, I went out in my driveway to smoke a cigarette. My house is on a hill facing West with a view of the Pacific Ocean. It was a cloudless night with a waning moon. I witnessed a craft that was a large orange glowing orb object traveling just above the horizon come out of the North, headed south, with a smaller white glowing orb following it. At first I believed it to be an airplane or helicopter traveling very quickly and very low over the water, only a few hundred feet at most. Then I witnessed the white object move closer to the larger orange object and then disappear as it came right to it. I then noticed that there was no sound at all coming from them. The orange orb stopped in mid flight and disappeared into what I assume was the ocean, leaving behind a faint white glow out in the water that lasted for a couple minutes.

On July 18, 2007, a series of loud rumblings were heard on the Central Coast. At 14:12 I heard a faint boom, then, approximately 10 seconds later heard a rumble and felt my house vibrate just like an earthquake had hit it. The rumble lasted about 3 to 4 seconds. I have lived in an area where military jets do maneuvers all my life, and have heard and felt sonic booms many times. This however most definitely did not feel like a sonic boom at all, and felt just like a magnitude 3 to 3.5 earthquake. The air force reported to the local media that they were conducting training with their new F-22 Raptors 50 miles off the coast, however the planes were reported to have returned to their airbase by 13:00. NASA also reported conducting super sonic test flights near Edwards AFB, but both locations are quite far from here. USGS reported no earthquakes in California that day that would have matched that magnitude.
