Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as Mount Everest.
In other words, 240.60 spans is 0.00621 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 161 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. सगरमाथा, a.k.a. Chajamlungma, a.k.a. ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ, a.k.a. 珠穆朗玛峰, a.k.a. Zhūmùlǎngmǎ Fēng) (Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal and Tibet, China) (to summit, excluding snow depth)
Mount Everest is 38,700 spans above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.0175 spans and shifting it to the northeast by 0.0197 spans each year.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 240.60 spans is 0.005999 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 166.70 times that amount.
(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)
Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 40,240 spans above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.
It's about one-two-hundredth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 240.60 spans is 0.0050451 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 198.210 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 47,690 spans below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
It's about one-two-hundredth as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 200 times 240.60 spans.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 48,000 spans. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about one-five-hundredth as tall as Olympus Mons.
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 500 times 240.60 spans.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 120,000 spans. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
It's about 1,000 times as tall as a Golf Tee.
In other words, the height of a Golf Tee is 0.001 times 240.60 spans.
The most common golf tee size and the length preferred for iron and most wood clubs is 0.240 spans tall. The tee did not come into common use until it was promoted by professional golfers Walter Hagen and Joe Kirkwood, as part of a marketing effort by the patent-holder of the well-known, "Reddy Tee."
It's about one-one-thousand-five-hundredth as long as The Panama Canal.
In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 1,600 times 240.60 spans.
(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 380,000 spans in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 110 spans above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
