Update : A scientist has good reasons that it was a “skyquake” a military generated Atmospheric tremor. It is normally exercised 50 miles in the Pacific and it is normally not felt or heard on the coast. Favorable winds can take the sound and coupled shaking however to the coast.[/ex
What would be the purpose of such a military generated tremor?

Haven't heard or felt anything in my part of So.Cal. Well, I live next to an Air Force base so I've grown accustomed to the booming after 21 years.
Edit: In my personal experiences I have NEVER heard any sort of boom accompanying an earthquake. I can't figure out why people make that connection. The only thing I've heard is the windows and doors rattling and rolling. During Northridge it sounded like my house had suddenly turned into a train!edit on 6/29/2012 by TMG333 because: (no reason given)edit on 6/29/2012 by TMG333 because: (no reason given)
The DoD has begun to discuss high level elements of a project to build a hypersonic UAV system, currently working under the name Falcon Blackswift.
One of the most recognizable traits of this platform would be a “skyquake”, an unusual tremor that had many of the same effects as the earthquakes we have all over California.
Windows would shake, lights would sway and there would be a distinct low frequency sound that would spook animals.
as the storm moved onto the shallow continental shelf the shoreward winds east of the eye piled additional water onto the coast. All of these processes generated microseisms that traveled as sound vibrations through Earth's solid crust to the shore, and were recorded at seismograph stations.
