Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 400,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as a Brachiosaurus.
In other words, 175 parsecs is 420,000,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of a Brachiosaurus, and the height of a Brachiosaurus is 0.00000000000000000240 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 0.000000000000000420 parsecs. 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 25,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 175 parsecs is 23,800,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.0000000000000000420 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 0.000000000000007360 parsecs 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 40,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Great Pyramid of Giza.
In other words, 175 parsecs is 42,000,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000 times the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza, and the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 0.0000000000000000240 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 0.00000000000000420 parsecs. 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 60,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Statue of Liberty.
In other words, 175 parsecs is 58,070,000,000,000,000.000000000000000000000 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.000000000000000017220 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 0.0000000000000030140 parsecs 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 50,000,000,000,000,000 times as long as a Football field.
In other words, 175 parsecs is 49,212,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000000 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 0.00000000000000002032020 times that amount.
(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 0.000000000000003556040 parsecs 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 0.0000000000000002963370 parsecs farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
It's about 70,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, 175 parsecs is 71,000,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000 times the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree), and the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.0000000000000000140 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 0.00000000000000250 parsecs. 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 95,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Leaning Tower of Pisa.
In other words, 175 parsecs is 95,700,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa is 0.00000000000000001040 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 0.000000000000001830 parsecs 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.
