We study an interaction between the solar wind flow and a conductive obstacle with a weak dipole magnetic field using a three dimensional implementation of the hybrid code. We show that the hybrid approach is capable of describing most of the structures formed due to the interaction between the solar wind and a magnetized planet like the bow shock, proton foreshock, magnetopause, magnetosheath, northern and southern cusps and the current sheath.
