Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-two-hundred-thousandth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth
In other words, 629.980 feet is 0.00000479146190 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 208,704.570 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 131,479,700 feet. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about 2,000,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair
In other words, 629.980 feet is 1,900,000 times the length of a Strand of Hair, and the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.000000530 times that amount.
(average)
A strand of human hair averages 99 µm (micrometers), with blond hair being the finest and black hair the thickest. On a healthy scalp, each strand of hair will last up to 6 years.
It's about 2,000,000 times as tall as a Human hair, Strand of
In other words, 629.980 feet is 1,900,000 times the height of a Human hair, Strand of, and the height of a Human hair, Strand of is 0.000000530 times that amount.

It's about 2,000,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper
In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.000000500 times 629.980 feet.
(for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)
A single sheet of 20 lb, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is just 0.0003 feet thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
It's about 0.0000005 times as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon
In other words, 629.980 feet is 0.00000049947890 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 2,002,087 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Luna) (median of semi-major axis, or apigee, and semi-minor axes, or perigee)
The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is elliptical, with an average distance of 1,261,275,000 feet from center-to-center. About 428.376 kg of moon rock have been cataloged on the Earth, from the American Apollo and Soviet Luna Programs, and from samples that have been extracted from meteorites.
It's about 25,000,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.0000000380 times 629.980 feet.
(a.k.a. RBCs, a.k.a. haematids, a.k.a. erythrocyte, a.k.a. erythroid cells, a.k.a. red blood corpuscles)
An average Red Blood Cell measures 7.5 µm (micrometers) in diameter. An average human has 20 - 30 trillion red blood cells in their body and each cell completes a circulatory lap in about 20 seconds.
It's about 30,000,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular)
In other words, 629.980 feet is 32,000,000 times the length of a Nucleus (Cellular), and the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.0000000310 times that amount.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.0000200 feet. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
