Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 400 times as tall as a Brachiosaurus.
In other words, 4,884,000,000 microns is 380 times the height of a Brachiosaurus, and the height of a Brachiosaurus is 0.0026 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 13,000,000 microns. 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 450 times as tall as a Telephone Pole.
In other words, the height of a Telephone Pole is 0.0023 times 4,884,000,000 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 one-five-hundredth as long as The Colorado River.
In other words, 4,884,000,000 microns is 0.0021 times the length of The Colorado River, and the length of The Colorado River is 476 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 600 times as long as a London bus.
In other words, 4,884,000,000 microns is 583 times the length of a London bus, and the length of a London bus is 0.00172 times that amount.
(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 Danube.
In other words, 4,884,000,000 microns is 0.00171 times the length of The Danube, and the length of The Danube is 585 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-seven-hundredth as long as The Oregon Trail.
In other words, 4,884,000,000 microns is 0.0014 times the length of The Oregon Trail, and the length of The Oregon Trail is 714 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-seven-hundredth as long as The Volga.
In other words, 4,884,000,000 microns is 0.00138 times the length of The Volga, and the length of The Volga is 725 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.
