It's about one-six-thousand-five-hundredth as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon.
In other words, 812.9 leas is 0.0001546816 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 6,464.893 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 5,255,311 leas 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 one-one-hundred-fiftieth as long as The Great Wall of China (total).
In other words, 812.9 leas is 0.00672 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 149 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)
The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 121,000 leas. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-one-hundredth as long as The Amazon River.
In other words, 812.9 leas is 0.009238 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 108.2 times that amount.
(from Nevado Mismi, Arequipa, Peru through near Marajó, Brazil) (approximate distance)
The Amazon River has an approximate distance of 87,990 leas. Although by most measures it is the largest and one of the most significant rivers in the world, the region surrounding the Amazon is mostly sparsely populated and the river itself has no bridges across it at any point.
It's about one-one-hundredth as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only).
In other words, 812.9 leas is 0.009501 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 105.3 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (wall segments only)
The Great Wall of China has total wall segment length of 85.56 leas. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-eightieth as long as I-80.
In other words, 812.9 leas is 0.0128212 times the length of I-80, and the length of I-80 is 77.9958 times that amount.

Interstate 80, crosses the continent of North America from Teaneck, New Jersey to San Francisco, California and covers a total length of 63,402.6 leas. A 820.21 leas stretch between mile marker 318 in Grand Island, Nebraska and mile marker 390 in Lincoln, Nebraska is the longest straight path in the US Interstate system.
It's about one-seventy-fifth as long as The Distance from L.A. to New York.
In other words, the length of The Distance from L.A. to New York is 75.8 times 812.9 leas.
(Los Angeles, California to New York City, New York) (via I-10 E, I-15 N, I-70 E, I-76 E, I-80 E, I-280 E)
The total length of the freeway route from Los Angeles, California to New York City, New York via Interstate 80 is 61,400 leas long. This route intersects eleven states and several major cities, including Las Vegas, Nevada; Denver, Colorado; Lincoln, Nebraska; Omaha, Nebraska; Des Moines, Iowa; South Bend, Indiana; and Cleveland, Ohio.
