It's about 300 times as long as a Football field.
In other words, 442.910 leas is 295.2730 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 0.0033867 times that amount.
(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 1.50 leas from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 0.1250 leas farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
It's about 300 times as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch.
In other words, 442.910 leas is 309 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 0.00324 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 1.440 leas (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 1.440 leas, and later converted to the metric units used today). The goal markess were defined as part of the pitch by the original rules of the game in the late 16th century, but it was not until the mid 19th century that the crossbar and the net were added
It's about 350 times as tall as Big Ben.
In other words, the height of Big Ben is 0.0029 times 442.910 leas.
(officially the clock tower of Palace of Westminster, a.k.a. Houses of Parliament) (London, England)
The clock tower of the Palace of Westminster, which houses the bell known as "Big Ben," rises 1.30 leas. The tower has no elevator, and is therefore only accessible by climbing 334 steps to the top.
It's about 350 times as tall as The Statue of Liberty.
In other words, 442.910 leas is 348.40 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.00287 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 1.2710 leas 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 one-four-hundredth as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, 442.910 leas is 0.0025399074 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 393.715140 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 174,380.370 leas at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 1,430 leas.
It's about 450 times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.0023 times 442.910 leas.
(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 1 leas. 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.
