Nope, you have to wait more than 4 hours to see that. It's almost unnoticeable to naked eyes.
Did the moon looked like that?
Yes that was the effect (I too was in Vegas and saw what the OP saw.) What I am not understanding is your comment that Jupiter is unnoticeable to the
naked eye. Go outside, get a star-chart, use an app, a program, whatever and you will see Jupiter in all its glory and brightness. The only planet
that rivals it, in terms of brightness is Venus.
ETA. Never mind. I believe I understand now what you are trying to say. Not that cannot see Jupiter, but rather you would have to sit and stare for
a good number of hours to actually realize its apparent motion across the night sky.
