In other words, the length of The Hollywood Walk of Fame is 6,700 times 579 milimeters.(Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street, Hollywood, California) (approximate length)
The Hollywood Walk of Fame is approximately 3,900,000 milimeters. Gene Autry, most famous as the singer of "Back in the Saddle Again" and as the writer and singer of "Here Comes Santa Claus," is the only entertainer to have a star in every category — film, television, recording, radio, and theater.

The rectangular oval course of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is 4,023,360 milimeters. While famous for its automotive racing, the first motorsport held at the track was a series of motorcycle races in August, 1909 — a little less than two years before the inaugural Indianapolis 500 race was run.
It's about one-seven-thousandth as long as Daytona International Speedway
In other words, 579 milimeters is 0.00014391 times the length of Daytona International Speedway, and the length of Daytona International Speedway is 6,948.790 times that amount.(Daytona Beach, Florida) (tri-oval course)
The tri-oval course of the Daytona International Speedway, upon which the NASCAR Daytona 500 is run, is 4,023,360 milimeters in length. Although the tri-oval design is said to allow for greater visibility during the race, the real reason for the then-unique design was that plot available for construction of the track was only 350 acres and could not accommodate a traditional oval layout of appropriate length.
It's about one-eight-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as a Puncak Jaya
In other words, 579 milimeters is 0.0001186 times the height of a Puncak Jaya, and the height of a Puncak Jaya is 8,432 times that amount.(a.k.a. Mt. Carstensz, a.k.a. Carstensz Pyramid, a.k.a. Nemangkawi, a.k.a. Carstensz Toppen, a.k.a. Gunung Sukarno) (Papua province, Indonesia)
The highest point in Oceania (and therefore one of the seven summits) peak of Puncak Jaya is 4,884,000 milimeters. Dutch explorer Jan Carstenszoon, the mountain's namesake, is said to have been ridiculed for claiming to have seen snow near the equator when he reported his discovery of the peak in 1623.
It's about one-eight-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as a Vinson Massif
In other words, 579 milimeters is 0.0001184 times the height of a Vinson Massif, and the height of a Vinson Massif is 8,446 times that amount.(a.k.a. Mount Vinson) (Antarctica)
Mount Vinson, the highest peak of the Vinson Massif mountain, reaches 4,892,000 milimeters at its peak. The mountain is named after Georgia Congressman Carl Vinson who emphatically promoted Antarctic exploration in the 1930s.
It's about one-nine-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as Mount Elbrus
In other words, 579 milimeters is 0.0001026 times the height of Mount Elbrus, and the height of Mount Elbrus is 9,747 times that amount.(a.k.a. Mingi Tau, a.k.a. Эльбрус, a.k.a. იალბუზი) (Karachay-Cherkessia and Kabardino-Balkaria, Russia) (west summit)
The west summit of the dual-summit volcano Mount Elbrus is 5,642,000 milimeters at its peak and is the highest peak in both Russia and the European continent. Until 1976, a cable car would take visitors to the mountain as far up as the Garabashi camp, located at an elevation of 3,800,000 milimeters.
