Google is honoring Jules Verne by creating a doodle on the 183rd birthday of the legendary writer! The doodle is made to appear like portholes in a submarine. The 3D-view looks out into an artistic interpretation of the ocean, with fish and plants of varying colors. A switch to the right allows users to adjust the view up or down, left or right, to see all the underwater marvels, including a pair of deep sea divers.

Jules Verne was born in France on Feb. 8, 1828. His first book was “Five Weeks in a Balloon,” which was published in 1863.

Verne penned countless books, poems, essays and more. Verne created classics such as

“Around the World in Eighty Days,” “Journey to the Center of the Earth” and “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”

Verne’s books are included scientific marvels such as underwater exploration and space travel, alien concepts for his time. He died from diabetes in 1905 at the age of 77.
