Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-eight-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (total).
In other words, 0.6840 miles is 0.000124 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 8,060 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)
The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 5,500 miles. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, 0.6840 miles is 0.0000862941140 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 11,588.2760 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 7,926.38060 miles at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 65 miles.
It's about 20,000 times as tall as a Golf Tee.
In other words, the height of a Golf Tee is 0.0000500 times 0.6840 miles.
The most common golf tee size and the length preferred for iron and most wood clubs is 0.0000340 miles 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-thirty-five-thousandth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth.
In other words, 0.6840 miles is 0.000027468270 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 36,405.6420 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 24,901.4590 miles. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about 80,000 times as long as an Aspirin.
In other words, 0.6840 miles is 79,000 times the length of an Aspirin, and the length of an Aspirin is 0.0000130 times that amount.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)
A single aspirin tablet measures 0.00000870 miles in diameter. One of the most common medicines in the world and a foundation of worldwide health systems, an estimated 40,000 metric tons of aspirin are consumed each year.
It's about one-three-hundred-fifty-thousandth as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon.
In other words, 0.6840 miles is 0.0000028633890 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 349,236.50 times that amount.
(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 238,877.80 miles 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 650,000 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness).
In other words, the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.00000150 times 0.6840 miles.
(average; restaurant and supermarket applications) (based on FMA Omcan Italian Made TR50 Counter Top Pasta Machine Extruder 13317)
An average strand of restaurant-grade spaghetti measures 0.00000110 miles in thickness. In 2010, a California Buca di Beppo set a world record by preparing a 13,780-lb bowl of spaghetti, served in a swimming pool.
