We consider imaging of solar flares from NASA Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) data as a parametric imaging problem, where flares are represented as a finite collection of geometric shapes. We set up a Bayesian model in which the number of objects forming the image is a priori unknown, as well as their shapes. We use a sequential Monte Carlo algorithm to explore the corresponding posterior distribution. We apply the method to synthetic and experimental data, largely known in the RHESSI community. The method reconstructs improved images of solar flares, with the additional advantage of providing uncertainty quantification of the estimated parameters.
