I think I saw a normal looking passenger jet in the air that wasn't moving

I was driving north on Highway 51 just north of Madison, WI, at the intersection of Highway 51 and Windsor Rd. This is about 4 Miles north of Dane County Regional Airport.

It was 8:30 at night and it was dark out. What I'm pretty sure I saw was a normal passenger type jet at the same height it would be as if it were coming in for a landing at the Dane county airport, but it wasn't moving.

I thought it might be a helicopter at first, but as I got closer I thought it was much to big to be a helicopter, and when I got right next to it I could swear the shape was of a passenger jet and I could see the two jet engines under the wings. It had some red and white lights that were steady, and some red and white lights that were blinking.

Nothing really seemed out of place except for the fact that it wasn't moving. I had it in sight for about 30 seconds I guess as I drove up to it and passed it.

I turned around at the next exit a few miles down the road and drove back to see if it was still there, but it was gone by that time.
