Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 85,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Arc de Triomphe.
In other words, the height of The Arc de Triomphe is 0.0000000000000000120 times 434.450 light years.
(Paris, France)
The Arc de Triomphe stands 0.00000000000000520 light years 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.
It's about 300,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as a Brachiosaurus.
In other words, 434.450 light years is 320,000,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of a Brachiosaurus, and the height of a Brachiosaurus is 0.00000000000000000310 times that amount.
(based on comparable bone measurements, height to head)
Dinosaurs in the genus Brachiosaurus had an estimated height (at the head with neck fully extended) of up to 0.00000000000000140 light years. A resin cast of the first Brachiosaurus specimen, owned by the Field Museum in Chicago, is currently on display at the O'Hare International Airport.
It's about 20,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 434.450 light years is 18,100,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.00000000000000005520 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 0.0000000000000240 light years above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about 30,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Great Pyramid of Giza.
In other words, 434.450 light years is 32,000,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000 times the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza, and the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 0.0000000000000000310 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (estimated original height)
The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated original height (without loss due to erosion) of 0.0000000000000140 light years. The Pyramid was the tallest structure in the world for almost 4,000 years — from its construction ca. 2551 BCE until it was overtaken by the Lincoln Cathedral in Lincoln, England, built in the year 1300.
It's about 45,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Statue of Liberty.
In other words, 434.450 light years is 44,200,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.000000000000000022620 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 0.0000000000000098290 light years 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 35,000,000,000,000,000 times as long as a Football field.
In other words, 434.450 light years is 37,458,200,000,000,000.00000000000000000000000 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 0.00000000000000002669640 times that amount.
(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 0.00000000000001159830 light years 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 0.0000000000000009665220 light years farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
It's about 55,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.0000000000000000190 times 434.450 light years.
(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 0.00000000000000800 light years. 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.
