Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 90,000 times as tall as The Statue of Liberty.
In other words, 8,290,000,000,000 microns is 89,150 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.000011220 times that amount.
(a.k.a. "Liberty Enlightening the World," a.k.a. La Liberté Éclairant le Monde) (Liberty Island, New York City, New York) (pedestal base to torch peak)
The Statue of Liberty reaches 92,990,000 microns including the pedestal. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top.
It's about 100,000 times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, 8,290,000,000,000 microns is 110,000 times the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree), and the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.00000910 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)
Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 76,000,000 microns. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks.
It's about 100,000 times as long as The Wingspan of a 747.
In other words, 8,290,000,000,000 microns is 121,000 times the length of The Wingspan of a 747, and the length of The Wingspan of a 747 is 0.000008260 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Boeing 747, a.k.a. Jumbo Jet, a.k.a. Queen of the Skies) (for Boeing 747-8 series)
The wingspan of a Boeing 747-8 is 68,500,000 microns. Fully loaded, the 747 can travel 8,290,000,000,000 microns before refueling.
It's about 150,000 times as tall as The Cinderella Castle.
In other words, 8,290,000,000,000 microns is 144,000 times the height of The Cinderella Castle, and the height of The Cinderella Castle is 0.000006940 times that amount.
(Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake, Florida)
Walt Disney World's Cinderella Castle is 57,600,000 microns tall. The castle's architecture uses the optical trick known as "forced perspective" — the castle gets smaller near the top — to appear larger than it truly is.
It's about 150,000 times as tall as The Leaning Tower of Pisa.
In other words, 8,290,000,000,000 microns is 147,000 times the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa is 0.00000680 times that amount.
(a.k.a. The Tower of Pisa, a.k.a. Torre pendente di Pisa) (Pisa, Italy) (height along center axis)
The Leaning Tower of Pisa stands 56,400,000 microns tall along the angle of its lean. In May of 2008, in an successful effort to stabilize the tower, 70 tonnes of earth were removed from the tower's base on the side opposite the lean.
It's about 150,000 times as tall as Nelson's Column.
In other words, 8,290,000,000,000 microns is 160,500 times the height of Nelson's Column, and the height of Nelson's Column is 0.0000062310 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom) (from pedestal first step to tip of statue's hat)
Nelson's Column measures 51,640,000 microns from the first step of the pedestal's base to the top of the statue's hat. While the London tower is the tallest, there are at least eight other monuments to Admiral Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, 1st Duke of Bronté throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and Barbados.
It's about 150,000 times as tall as The Arc de Triomphe.
In other words, the height of The Arc de Triomphe is 0.00000590 times 8,290,000,000,000 microns.
(Paris, France)
The Arc de Triomphe stands 49,000,000 microns tall. France's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the First World War lies beneath the arch and is commemorated by the first eternal flame to have been lit in modern European history.
