It's about 650,000,000,000,000,000 times as long as a London bus
In other words, 175 parsecs is 644,000,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the length of a London bus, and the length of a London bus is 0.00000000000000000155 times that amount.
(Routemaster Double-Decker, RM standard specification)
The Routemaster Double-Decker buses, well-known as icons of London, measure 0.0000000000000002720 parsecs in length. The buses were said to be well-designed for travel in the London traffic, as they offered an open door for riders to board and exit even while the bus was moving at low speeds, and a full-time conductor to collect fares.
It's about 2,500,000,000,000,000,000 times as tall as a Christmas Tree (artificial)
In other words, 175 parsecs is 2,300,000,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 times the height of a Christmas Tree (artificial), and the height of a Christmas Tree (artificial) is 0.00000000000000000043 times that amount.
