(a.k.a. Luna) (median of semi-major axis, or apigee, and semi-minor axes, or perigee)
The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is elliptical, with an average distance of 15,135,300,000 inches from center-to-center. About 428.376 kg of moon rock have been cataloged on the Earth, from the American Apollo and Soviet Luna Programs, and from samples that have been extracted from meteorites.
It's about 70 times as long as Hadrian's Wall.

It's about 70 times as long as The 405.
In other words, 326,000,000 inches is 71.052 times the length of The 405, and the length of The 405 is 0.014074 times that amount.
(a.k.a. I-405, Interstate 405, San DIego Freeway) (Southern California)
Running from Irvine to San Fernando, The 405 runs a total of 4,588,200 inches. The 405 is the most heavily-trafficed freeway in the United States, with an average speed as low as 8 kph during rush hours.
It's about 75 times as long as The English Channel.
In other words, 326,000,000 inches is 77.40 times the length of The English Channel, and the length of The English Channel is 0.0129 times that amount.

The English Channel measures between 4,210,000 inches, narrowing as it flows northeast. The world speed record for a Channel crossing by swimmer was set by Australian Trent Grimsey in 2012, with a time of 6 hours, 55 minutes.
It's about 95 times as long as The Panama Canal.
In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 0.011 times 326,000,000 inches.
(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 3,500,000 inches in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 1,000 inches above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
It's about 300 times as tall as Olympus Mons.
In other words, 326,000,000 inches is 310 times the height of Olympus Mons, and the height of Olympus Mons is 0.0032 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 1,100,000 inches. 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 750 times as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 0.0013 times 326,000,000 inches.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 430,000 inches. 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.
