Photometric observations of RR Lyr in the ultraviolet have been obtained using the Astronomical Netherlands Satellite. The observations are compared with theoretical light curves calculated using synthetic spectra and angular diameters determined as a function of phase for RR Lyr by Manduca et al. from photometry at longer wavelengths. A good agreement is found. A bump in the observed light curves in the phase range 0.6 to 0.8 supports the existence of a shock as predicted by Hutchinson, Hill, and Lillie.
