Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 35,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Eiffel Tower.
In other words, 386 parsecs is 36,800,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of The Eiffel Tower, and the height of The Eiffel Tower is 0.00000000000000002720 times that amount.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 0.00000000000001050 parsecs tall, including its flagpole. The Tower is the largest structure in Paris as most other buildings are governed by a zoning restriction limiting them to a height of 0.00000000000000120 parsecs or less.
It's about 40,000,000,000,000,000 times as long as The QE2.
In other words, 386 parsecs is 40,500,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 0.00000000000000002470 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 0.000000000000009530 parsecs. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 0.0000003110 parsecs, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about 55,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 386 parsecs is 52,500,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.0000000000000000190 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 65,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, 386 parsecs is 64,700,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.00000000000000001550 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 0.000000000000005960 parsecs tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about 70,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, 386 parsecs is 68,500,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.00000000000000001460 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 0.000000000000005640 parsecs to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons).
It's about 70,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Washington Monument.
In other words, 386 parsecs is 70,357,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000000 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 0.0000000000000000142130 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 0.00000000000000548630 parsecs tall, with some discrepancy due to the fact that the Monument's base is slightly below the surrounding ground. Interrupted in its construction by the American Civil War, it was almost 36 years between groundbreaking and the completion of construction.
It's about 70,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel).
In other words, 386 parsecs is 72,200,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel), and the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel) is 0.00000000000000001390 times that amount.
(a.k.a. 新加坡摩天观景轮, a.k.a. சிங்கப்பூர் ஃப்ளையர், a.k.a. Pelayang Singapura) (Marina Centre, Singapore)
The Singapore Flyer has a height of 0.000000000000005350 parsecs. Based on recommendations from Feng Shui masters, the wheel was re-engineered to spin in the opposite direction five months after it began operating.
