Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 0.0000005 times as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 0.00437 yards is 0.00000043590 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 2,294,000 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 10,060 yards 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 2,500,000 times as long as a Glucose Molecule
In other words, the length of a Glucose Molecule is 0.000000370 times 0.00437 yards.
(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.00000000160 yards in its open-chain form. Glucose is the most common fuel source of energy in human biology, with 3.75 kilocalories of energy per gram.
It's about 0.0000004 times as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 0.00437 yards is 0.000000366530 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 2,728,300 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 11,923 yards 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 0.0000004 times as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, 0.00437 yards is 0.000000360 times the height of Maxwell Montes, and the height of Maxwell Montes is 2,800,000 times that amount.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 12,000 yards. 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 0.0000002 times as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, 0.00437 yards is 0.000000150 times the height of Olympus Mons, and the height of Olympus Mons is 6,700,000 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 30,000 yards. 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 0.00000005 times as long as The Panama Canal
In other words, 0.00437 yards is 0.0000000450 times the length of The Panama Canal, and the length of The Panama Canal is 22,000,000 times that amount.
(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 96,000 yards in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 28 yards above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
It's about 0.00000004 times as long as The English Channel
In other words, 0.00437 yards is 0.00000003730 times the length of The English Channel, and the length of The English Channel is 26,800,000 times that amount.
(average width between Isle of Ushant and The Walde Lighthouse) (La Manche, Ärmelkanal, Mor Breizh, Mor Bretannek) (a.k.a. The Channel)
The English Channel measures between 117,000 yards, 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.
