Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 350 times as tall as a Telephone Pole
In other words, the height of a Telephone Pole is 0.0027 times 4,023,360,000 microns.
(a.k.a. Utility Pole, a.k.a Power Pole, a.k.a. Telegraph Pole, a.k.a. Telegraph Post, a.k.a. Hydro Pole) (exposed height; per Florida Public Service Commission average)
A standard telephone pole is 11,000,000 microns tall. Despite alternatives, most telephone poles in the US are made of wood — most commonly pine — and have a lifespan of 25 to 50 years, depending on climate and preservatives applied.
It's about 500 times as long as a London bus
In other words, the length of a London bus is 0.00208 times 4,023,360,000 microns.
(Routemaster Double-Decker, RM standard specification)
The Routemaster Double-Decker buses, well-known as icons of London, measure 8,380,000 microns in length. The buses were said to be well-designed for travel in the London traffic, as they offered an open door for riders to board and exit even while the bus was moving at low speeds, and a full-time conductor to collect fares.
It's about one-six-hundredth as long as The Colorado River
In other words, 4,023,360,000 microns is 0.00173 times the length of The Colorado River, and the length of The Colorado River is 578 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Aha Kwahwat, a.k.a. Grand River, a.k.a. Tizon River, a.k.a. Tecon River, a.k.a. Tison River) (from Grand Lake, Colorado through the Gulf of California)
The Colorado River runs 2,330,000,000,000 microns in length. Along this length, the river descends from its source, approximately 2,750,000,000 microns above sea level in the Rocky Mountains, to its mouth in the Gulf of California.
It's about 700 times as tall as a Giraffe
In other words, the height of a Giraffe is 0.001 times 4,023,360,000 microns.
(Giraffa camelopardalis) (Adult, average)
An adult giraffe may grow to be up to 6,000,000 microns tall. Adult giraffes require very little sleep, averaging just 1.9 hours per day.
It's about one-seven-hundredth as long as The Danube
In other words, 4,023,360,000 microns is 0.00141 times the length of The Danube, and the length of The Danube is 709 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Donau, a.k.a. Dunaj, a.k.a. Dunav, a.k.a. Duna, a.k.a. Дунав (Dunav), a.k.a. Dunărea, a.k.a. Дунáй (Dunay), a.k.a. Tuna) (from Breg Martinskapelle, Black Forest, Germany through the Danube Delta, Romania)
The Danube river runs 2,850,000,000,000 microns in total length. Intersecting Vienna, Austria; Bratislava, Slovakia; Budapest, Hungary; and Belgrade, Serbia, the Danube touches more capital cities than any other river.
It's about one-eight-hundred-fiftieth as long as The Oregon Trail
In other words, 4,023,360,000 microns is 0.00115 times the length of The Oregon Trail, and the length of The Oregon Trail is 870 times that amount.
(from Independence, Missouri to Oregon City, Oregon)
The historic Oregon Trail stretched 3,490,000,000,000 microns across five (sometimes six) states in the western United States. In the early years of the Trail's existence, the trip was estimated to have taken an average of 160 days.
It's about one-nine-hundredth as long as The Volga
In other words, 4,023,360,000 microns is 0.00114 times the length of The Volga, and the length of The Volga is 877 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Волга, a.k.a. İdel (Идел), a.k.a. Атăл (Atăl), a.k.a. Edil, a.k.a. İdil, a.k.a. Рав (Rav)) (from the Valdai Hills, Tver Oblast, Russia through the Caspian Sea)
The largest river in Europe, the Volga river runs 3,530,000,000,000 microns in total length. World War II's Battle of Stalingrad between the Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, which resulted in nearly two million casualties, was fought in part for control of the river.
