I saw 2 orange-red craft closeup felt static electric.
On 23 June 1995 I was employed as a long haul truck driver. I was traveling east on US hiway 50 near the Hickison Petroglyphs and Austin and Eureka, Nevada. I first saw what looked like an orange moon to my left and ahead of me that appeared to be really far away> As I got closer it became obvious that it was not the moon and there were (2) Two of them and were above the ground. The colour varied from orange to reddish and when I stopped on the right shoulder and turned off all lights and the engine I felt a kind of static electric like putting your face inches from a TV or Computer screen only it was much stronger and the hair on my arms stood up. I watched for about 5 mins. or more before I reached for a cheap camera I had above the windshield in a map Pocket. I got out and stood on the top step (running board) and heard no sounds from the craft, there were no lights on board and I never felt in danger. I snapped the first shot and then the film advanced automaticlly and as I took the 2nd one there was nothing in the view finder that I could see. I had the film developed a few months later and when I saw the second shot (streaks) I was really surprised because I never saw those streaks through the camera. The first shot is quite a bit dimmer than it really was but is like I remember it.The objects were about1/8th of a mile or less from me. For years I was afraid to tell anyone or show the photos but I know what I saw and it was real. I did lose some time but I have never tried to find out what happened to the time. Driving trucks over the road you lose all kinds of time so that was no big deal to me. I will try to send along both photos with this message, I did send them to your webmaster,but I am not a computer wizz and may have to "Snail Mail" them to you. Thanks, ((name deleted))
