I'd call that 1 steel ring and a nose tip from full height, excluding legs.

Edit: Just for fun, assuming a 9m diameter, these two sections would stack to a height of ~45m (150 ft), roughly the same as a Falcon 9 booster with its legs retracted.

 A little closer look at the bars, since they seem to mean so much to so many.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

I highlighted where they are clearing if that helps.

#SpaceX crews hard at work with the continuation of polishing #StarShip, meanwhile another section of the wind breaker has been added. And it appears SpaceX is moving the makeshift security checkpoint, to another location. 🚀

Also went to a location a little further south to see the land being cleared (potentially to allow the Starship vehicle to be transported to the cape). Saw a Gopher Tortoise friend there. @elonmusk

Tall structure and the cylinder. There's a new weld pattern going around the cylinder.

The clearing near FedEx Lake is looking more like a road now. New layers are being added to the #StarshipEast prototype this morning. Sometimes you have to step back a little to understand the scale of the new construction in Cocoa. #SpaceX #Starship

Edit to add: uh oh, busted
