Let's say there's a solid ball the size of Ceres orbiting the Sun at a very close distance inside the orbit of Mercury. Not Parker Solar probe close but close enough to get "sandblasted" by the star over the eons. It is tidally locked to the Sun. It's so close there is considerable spallation of the surface looking into the star. Other side is forever in darkness. Composition is almost all iron and nickel with some silicates near the surface and on it. No surface melting. There is zero tectonic activity and negligible depth stratification. Core is solid. Apart from the surface phenomena due to the solar wind, it's geologically dead. I've described something similar to 16 Psyche, but with the exception of being considerably larger and very close to the Sun.   My question - can you imagine the shape of the solar wind deflection that would develop around it? Indeed, it has no flowing conductor inside, but it's very close to the Sun. It's made mostly out of metal and has been hit with charged particles since ever. It's effectively a conductive ball passing through a charge that is itself flowing outwards. Would the deflection be drop-like? Would poles form? Would the whole body get net positive or negative charge?
