I don't think there is a Ball number 3 anymore. The bottom "half ball" was turned into an 8-sided design and I think that upper portion of steel will sit inside the base of the crescent. It is the structure required to hold the whole crescent on there. I don't think the crescent just gets bolted to the top of this, I think it needs some underlying structure.

But I could be mistaken.

Yeah, I had been thinking that the third ball would cover the whole steel frame. Of course you can't just put the crescent on the balls and hope it doesn't fall, especially if its 23 m tall
