Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 2,500 times as wide as a Strand of Spaghetti
In other words, 4.4610 yards is 2,400 times the width of a Strand of Spaghetti, and the width of a Strand of Spaghetti is 0.0004 times that amount.
(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 0.0019 yards 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.
It's about one-two-thousand-five-hundredth as deep as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 4.4610 yards is 0.0003742 times the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 2,672.7 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. The first manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep took 4 hours and 48 minutes in 1960. This was the only manned descent to the floor of the Trench until 2012, when director James Cameron made the trip; several other descents have been made since then.
It's about one-two-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, 4.4610 yards is 0.0004 times the height of Maxwell Montes, and the height of Maxwell Montes is 2,700 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 3,500 times as long as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 4.4610 yards is 3,260 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.00031 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.00137 yards. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 16.50 yards in height.
It's about one-six-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, 4.4610 yards is 0.0002 times the height of Olympus Mons, and the height of Olympus Mons is 6,700 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 one-twenty-thousandth as long as The Panama Canal
In other words, 4.4610 yards is 0.000046 times the length of The Panama Canal, and the length of The Panama Canal is 22,000 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 one-twenty-five-thousandth as wide as The English Channel
In other words, 4.4610 yards is 0.0000381 times the width of The English Channel, and the width of The English Channel is 26,200 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.
