    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 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 current sheath.
