Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 0.000000000000000010 times as big as Earth's Oceans.
In other words, 470.98 cubic feet is 0.0000000000000000095 times the size of Earth's Oceans, and the size of Earth's Oceans is 110,000,000,000,000,000.0 times that amount.
(Total water volume of Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic, and Southern Oceans) (estimated)
Over 97% of the Earth's water is found in the planet's five oceans for a total volume of about 49,000,000,000,000,000,000.0 cubic feet. The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean, covering 165,760,000 sq. km — more than double the area of the Atlantic Ocean at 82,400,000 sq. km.
It's about 0.000000000000006 times as big as The Gulf of Mexico.
In other words, 470.98 cubic feet is 0.000000000000005479 times the size of The Gulf of Mexico, and the size of The Gulf of Mexico is 182,500,000,000,000.0 times that amount.
(water volume)
The Gulf of Mexico contains 85,960,000,000,000,000.0 cubic feet of water. Every second, the Mississippi River empties 423,800 cubic feet of water into the Gulf.
It's about 0.000000000003 times as big as The Grand Canyon.
In other words, 470.98 cubic feet is 0.0000000000032 times the size of The Grand Canyon, and the size of The Grand Canyon is 313,000,000,000 times that amount.
(Coconino County and Mohave Counties, Arizona, near Fredonia and Grand Canyon, Arizona)
A dynamic and continuously changing landscape, the Grand Canyon has an approximate volume of 147,000,000,000,000.0 cubic feet. The strata of the rock visible in the Canyon's walls display nearly 2 billion years of geological history.
It's about 0.000000000004 times as big as an Halley's Comet.
In other words, 470.98 cubic feet is 0.0000000000033 times the size of an Halley's Comet, and the size of an Halley's Comet is 300,000,000,000 times that amount.
(Comet Halley, officially "1P/Halley") (volume calculated based on 2005 dimensions)
Halley's Comet, the famous comet visible to observers on Earth approximately every 76 years, has a peanut- or potato-shaped nucleus made of rock, dust, ice, and various frozen gasses. The nucleus measures approximately 15 km by 8 km by 8 km, which yields a calculated volume of 140,000,000,000,000.0 cubic feet. The coma of the Comet — the trail of sublimated gasses that give the Comet its visibility — may be up to 100,000 km in length.
It's about 0.00000003 times as big as Sydney Harbour.
In other words, 470.98 cubic feet is 0.0000000237 times the size of Sydney Harbour, and the size of Sydney Harbour is 42,200,000 times that amount.
(formally Port Jackson, a.k.a. Sydney Harbor) (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia) (total estuary water volume at high tide)
Lending the term "sydharb" or "sydarb" to comparable quantities of water, Sydney Harbor contains approximately 19,800,000,000 cubic feet of water. Snapper Island, a onetime naval facility loocated in the Harbour, was transformed by the dredging efforts of the Australian Navy from a 2,360 sq. m (25,400 sq. ft) outcropping to a 16,500 sq. m (178,000 sq. ft) island shaped roughly in the outline of a boat.
It's about one-two-hundred-thousandth as big as The Great Pyramid of Giza.
In other words, 470.98 cubic feet is 0.000005493735 times the size of The Great Pyramid of Giza, and the size of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 182,025.5 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (including internal hillock)
The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated volume of 85,730,380 cubic feet including its internal hillock. The 2,300,000 stones used in the construction of the pyramid weighed an average 2.27 metric tons (2.06 short tons) and were quarried at distances of up to 805 km (500 mi) away.
It's about one-one-hundred-fifty-thousandth as big as The Melbourne Cricket Ground.
In other words, the size of The Melbourne Cricket Ground is 130,000 times 470.98 cubic feet.
(a.k.a. MCG, a.k.a. "The G") (Yarra Park, melbourne, Victoria, Australia) (internal volume)
The MCG has an internal volume of approximately 60,000,000 cubic feet. The first cricket game held on the site of the MCG was in 1853 when the Melbourne Cricket Club was granted permission to a roughly 0.04 sq. km (10-acre) area to be used "for cricket and no other purpose."
