Two throbbing extremely bright pulsating orbs the size of grapefruits outside bedroom window in Long Beach, CA

Around 4am on August 18, 2011. I was awaken by my child's baby monitor going absolutely berserk like we've never heard it before. The way I sleep in bed I face our bedroom window( we only have one) which is covered with a thin piece of fabric. I was so tired, so I just opened my eyes to stare out the window when I noticed to BRIGHT( throbbing) lights about the size of a grapefruit at the base of our window. I lay still to make sure I saw what I just thought I saw, then the lights "throbbed" or pulsated again. Me being a skeptic, immediately thought that it was an intruder on the side of our house. I immediately sat up and sat STILL waiting to perhaps see the shadow of a human pass by.

I then got up to check on my toddler who was fast asleep. I dare not look out the window, in fact it was like the event didn't even happen because I acted like I didn't see what I just saw. I tried to go back to sleep but felt CHARGED as if I had 10 cups of espresso.

Later that! day in Long Beach, we had a small earthquake too. I felt it because I was laying in the bed, if fact the earthquake centered in Signal Hill, which is just 4 blocks north of where we live ( not sure if it's related) the earthquake was a 3.2 if I remember correctly. Anyhow, when my husband came home from work, and started running errands together, I finally brought it up about these two strange lights outside our window, come to find out he saw them too! But he was trying to rationalize what he saw as well. At the time I saw the lights and thought it was an intruder I completely forgot about the motion sensor that would have come on if it had been a person or animal. The sensor didn't go off. I am so spooked. I don't think I'll ever sleep the same again. I have feelings of dread going to bed now. My nerves are frayed every time the baby monitor experiences even a little static.

Now I see why people remain quiet or go crazy or commit suicide or something, the range of emotions are over whelming. I have NEVER had any interest/beliefs in ! extra terrestrial phenomenon nor have I ever wanted to see ANYTHING.

I'd probably be dead if I had see a space craft or actually alien...
