Consider these three applications:
-http://ossim.org - has a package called ossimPlanet (aka osgPlanet)
-http://punt.sourceforge.net/new_svn/index.html or its relative http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NASA_World_Wind
-http://vterrain.org/Implementation/index.html - for more 'local' scenes, not full global apps.

Hope those tips help,
